It is peak of the season. This is another sad incident to remind us don't take the mountains for granted. My prayers go for their families.

Nepal Trekking/guide

I have just been trekking in the Annapurna region, and found the lonely planet guide fantastic.
Our Guide Dev (Khularam Tamang) was the best possible guide you could wish to have, so helpful and knowledgeable.
I am a pensioner so the Trekk was not easy, but Dev helped and supported us all the way.
I could thoroughly recommend Dev to any size or age of party. I think he must be about the best in Nepal.
Contact Dev on e mail <snip>. phone <snip>

Solo trekking

Hi
Can I get some advise on solo trekking in Nepal. Am going there for two months in March and April by myself. Am certain I will meet many people and will stay on the main trails eg EBC and Annapurna . Will probably walk with others but want to do my own thing. Is their significant danger walking alone ? i.e safety issues, AMS etc. Should I make arrangements with others before I go to walk with them which is easy enough to do? In a lot of ways its just easier to travel alone and the experiences…

Mt. Everest Base Camp January 2015

Hi travelers

I'm am going for the EBC Trek from the 8th of January 2015 with the company Himalayan Glacier.
I'm taking the 14-day trip without the Kathmandu part, and therefore the price is 1535 USD.

I'm alone in Nepal as a volunteer right now, but I would really like to share this great experience with someone!

So if you consider doing the same, read the itinerary plan and let me know if you are interested. I'm male, 20 years old and from Danmark.

Trekking with a group - which organisation?

I am looking for an organisation to make a trek with an international group (max. 12 people) and local guides. Yet there are so many organisations which offer treks and it's a bit hard to choose. Some are very expensive and/or also include some days in…
