I am looking to trek ABC with 7 days (Dec 12-18) on the trail and have some questions that perhaps someone can help me out with. It will be my first time in Nepal.

A) What would be the best itinerary if I would like to:
- skip Poon Hill
- pass through Ghandruk, Landruk and Australian Camp (for some cultural touch before reaching ABC and nice mountain views on the return leg)
- stay overnight in ABC for the sunset view and night view (hopefully reaching there on a full moon night or the night after…

Hi there,
I will arrive in Katmandu on a Saturday morning (around 6:30), and leave for Lukla Monday morning. My total stay will be 35 days, so I am contemplating whether I should obtain a 30 day visa upon entry and then extend it by another 15 days (70$ in total) rather than paying 100$ for 90 days. However I am a little worried that Nepalese bureaucracies might not be on my side ...
In theory it should work, but can I be rather sure that I will be able to get my extension in time, meaning going…

I wish to do this trek. I have read that some did it in 3 days but ideally 4.
Is 3 days/2nights possibe from Pokhara and back with bus or jeep to Naya Pul ?
If I come by bus from Kathmandu, will there be a near way avoiding Pokhara ? Will I still start from Naya Pul ?

Where will you prospose to stay overnight for best views, more choice of rooms or more to do at night ?
Will all the stops for overnight have room with seat toiletand 24 hrs hat shower ?
Or must I share will a few others in a room ?

Hi All,

I know many similar requests have been posted, but I'd like some help choosing a trek and itinerary for my trip to Nepal next week. I will fly into KTM on October 3 and fly out October 15. That would give me about 10 days to trek, I assume. I am deciding between ABC, AC (which I assume must be a shortened version based on my time constraints), and Langtang, although I am open to other options. I am generally a fast trekker with some experience of sleeping at higher altitudes (up to…

I was in Nepal 2 years ago, but couldn’t trek because I was sick from a bug that I'd picked up in India. I'm going again in April and really want to trek on this trip – and my interests are more related to culture, seeing village life and beautiful scenery rather than cresting a peak or visiting a base camp. I am 66, my travel partner is 69, and we’re both fit and accustomed to hiking (southern Arizona style, not the Himalayas). We have up to 9 days available, though we could do less – to be…

Hi guys,

I'll be leaving for Nepal within a week and, over the course of a month and a half, I am looking to do both a trek and a 10-day Vipassana mediation course. An inconvenient combination as it involves going from a state of physical inactivity to physical exertion or the other way around. Both are physically quite demanding and I expect that going from one to the other will cause some problems, even if I take some days in between. Last year I did the Annapurna Circuit trek, without any…
