My fiance and I are planning to trek to Gokyo and EBC in the coming weeks. I’ve read a number of the very useful posts here including on trip reports, itineraries and other miscellaneous info. Nevertheless, we have questions regarding the trek that we hope to receive some feedback on. We’ve trekked before at some altitude (3000-4000 meters) but have never been to Nepal and have never trekked for this long or at this altitude. We are in good physical condition but will be coming from sea level…
Can anyone suggest places to stay in Jharkot, Ranipauwa, Kagbeni, Marpha or Tukuche? We plan to spend about 10-12 days in 2 maybe 3 locations once we get to Jomsom, take day hikes from each and just enjoy the mountain vibe. We are older travelers (71 and 63) and need more comfort than in our backpacking days. Decent room with hot-water bathroom in the $25-$40 US Dollar (2,700-4,300 Nepal Rupee). A nice balcony or rooftop to enjoy a beer and the view after a hike or before dinner would be great.
I am planning a trip in Nepal for 17 days (end oct - beginning nov) to do the ABC.
I have contacted two trek agencies which are both offering me about ~800€ 17days with 12 days of ABC trek.
It is only after contacting them that I have read on various forums that it is more like 20US$/day for a guide and that what I'm willing to pay is overpriced.
I did a mistake and confirmed one of the agency (only send my arrival date but not my passport document). This agency is right now…
can you please guide us to where we are we be able to paraglide in the Katmandu area because I was considering Pokhara but I think that we surely don't have time for it because it's 5 hours away and 5 hours back that would practically take a whole day. Thank you and have a great day
My partner and I are gearing up towards 3-4 months of Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, South East Asia next year between the start of June & end of September. I realise in terms of not only trekking but travelling in general, these dates are not ideal, however, unfortunately these are the months I have been granted leave from work.
My question is, at what point in the trip should we visit Nepal to trek to EBC? Which month ensures the best chance of suitable trekking conditions/reduced flight…
May I know where are the best malls and cinemas located ?
I googled "Kathmandu Theatre Mall" and find images of some malls.
One of them is Civic Mall, is it the same as Theatre Mall in Google Map ?
