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…
I fly to Katmandu tomorrow and didnt know till last night the beds are rock hard where I am staying in a village. is it possible to buy in Ktm. i am a bit too old for no comfort at all. Any assistance you can give would be much appreciated
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…

My husband and I are planning on doing a trek in the annapurna region, starting on 8th October. We have to be back in Kathmandu on the 20th October so are looking a maximum duration of 12 days.
We have found an agency in Thamel who will do us an Annapurna Circuit package for USD 480 if we can find another 2 people to join us. This includes all ground transportation (including from Ktm and back), accommodation, permit, TIMs, food, guide and porter. It excludes drinks, personal travel…
I am planning to do this trek most likely in May 2017 otherwise October 2017. This will be a month long expedition. I am also looking for advice on the technical challenges when crossing Sherpani and West col. I came across some thread that Sherpani and West col are not too technical passes in comparison to the Amphu Lapcha pass and could be graded at pd-. Whereas crossing the Amphu Lapcha pass from Makalu region to the Everest is a very technical hard climb. How true is this?
I have experience…
