We are 4 family member, planning our nepal trip this march. Please see to the itinerary below and comment.
1)I would like to know about the taxi/car charges for KTM- Pokhara, KTM- Janakpur, Jankpur to Pokhara and Pokhara to Josome. If possible for each route otherwise cost of whole circuit will also do.
2)My other question for the group is how much time it takes for a car to reach from pokhara to josom, since flight for 4 is expensive, but we would really like to rationalise with…
I am going on an organized trek in the Annapurna foothills where we sleep in tea houses in February. Can anyone give advice on how warm of a sleeping bag we need in tea houses? Thanks
I'm really struggling to find information on the possible night time minimum temperature range for the higher parts of the Annapurna Sanctuary trek. Is anyone able to give me some idea of what I could expect in mid to late September/early October?
I'm from Queensland, Australia which means that what I consider "cold" is probably what someone from Europe or Canada thinks is pleasant shirt and shorts weather. I need to figure out how many jackets, thermals, socks etc I need to haul up there.
So...if one just turns up to Kathmandu in July and walks into a travel agency....how easy is it to arrange a return trip to Lhasa? How expensive is it? How long does it take before you can depart (i.e. have the agent arrange visas/permits etc.). How long are the trips themselves? Is there any benefit from booking online from your home country? I wanted to go to Nepal and Tibet, so figured this was going to be the easiest way (i.e. in that order - Nepal then China and back to Nepal).
I am looking into flights to Auckland, NZ, from KTM and I was wondering weather I would need an Indian transit visa.
I have seen flights via Abu Dhabi, although the total duration is much longer, than other flights from Delhi (via Singapore), so I was wondering if I would need to get an Indian transit visa?
I would have to book a flight from KTM to DEL separately, and then a flight from a flight from DEL to AKL, as looking on Skyscanner, there doesn't seem to be a way to fly from KTM to AKL…
Super last minute, but my sister and I are heading to Kathmandu next week, with the intention of trekking the AC Besi Sahar/Bhulbule to Jomsom in 12-14 days. I've trawled through the threads here, had a read of the NATT guide and also bought the LP trekking book (which is probably outdated), so I know this is possible in this time frame. I understand you can bus/jeep as far as Chamje now, but the road leaves a bit to be desired? We are both fit, in our 20's and have trekked before.
I'll spent a week in Nepal (Katmandu and the valley) on my own, at the end of February.
1) is it dangerous to walk alone in the streets (especially after sunset)?
2) is it safe to take a taxi alone, for medium distances?
3) any other dangers linked to the fact of being alone in Nepal?
I plan to trek to Everest base camp in March/April and am just wondering if it is possible to book my flight to Lukla directly from Kathmandu. Ideally, my plan is to meet fellow trekking partners in when I arrive in Thamel and then fly to Lukla a few days later. Is this a realistic idea?
My husband and I are planning to do the Manaslu/Tusm Valley circuit and the Kanchenjunga treks in Nepal in October and November. Has anyone done these treks using the company Himalayan Quests? If so would you recommend them?
On the Manaslu/Tusm Valley we are thinking about adding the side trip to the Ganesh Himal while in the Tsum Valley. Has anyone visited the Ganesh Himal? Any suggestions or comments regarding the area?
