Does anybody have any tips to help me save as much money as possible doing the Three Passes Trek this December? I'm looking to spend no more than 2600 total, including about 600 dollars worth of gear. So, 2000 for plane tickets, tims card, lodging, food, etc. Is this reasonable?
We are currently in Lumbini, Nepal (left Calcutta about April 10 in our Toyota 4Runner). We will leave Lumbini for North West India on the 28th of June.
Does anyone have a suggestion on a stop or stops while crossing western Nepal?
We would like to bird in Bardia National Park but the heat is bad for birding and for us. But may stop for a day just to bird one morning. We are in our mid to late 60's and have been on the road for 13 months. Like the outdoors. Money matters but we are…
So me and a friend of mine (two 23 year old guys) are travelling to nepal in mid-late July and are planning on doing a trek in the Annapurna Region (most likely the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek). Since this is during the monsoon season I have a few questions I would like to ask:
- Do the monsoons usually happen during a specific time of day (i.e morning, afternoon, night-time) or are they totally random?
- Should I consider hiring a guide (a porter won't be necessary since we plan…
Are taxis easy to find at places such as Patan, Pharping as well as closer to the city, such as Pashupatinath for a ride back to Kathmandu? I'm talking about general daylight hours. Or would you suggest hiring a taxi for many hours/a day at a time to visit various places instead of point-to-point?
I would appreciate current information (2016-2017) about the impact of the road on the Jomsom trek, especially from anyone who has also done the trek before ~ 2012. I have done the trek multiple times, most recently in 2012. For many years the concern has been that once the road was completed it would have a significant impact on the Jomsom trek. I understand that some of the roads impact can be diminished by hiking on the other side of the Kali Ghandaki, but the villages along the traditional…
I am in the formative stages of designing a trip in Nepal for early January 2018. Flying to KTM with 2 teenagers from Canada. We are in reasonable shape, and into wildlife and photography. Think we are also reasonable geared up for the weather. The mountains are the main draw of course.
We were thinking 3-4 days exploring Kathmandu, then flying to Pokhara and then doing the Nagarkot trek (3-4 days) culminating in some good views of Everest. But am open to suggestions. Since I am with…
I am planning to go to Nepal. One of the key things I would like to do is the skydiving .
Will it be safe ? Will the weather be good ? what will be the expenses ?
I would spend a few days in Kathmandu. How will be the weather in Nepal in 3 rd week of November ?
Next year in february I'm heading to Nepal for an EBC-Gokyo trek. I still have some questions and was hoping someone could help.
I'll be crossing Cho La pass. As far as I've heard it's perfectly doable without special gear, but that occasionally it can get slippery depending on the weather. Is it recommended to foresee some microspikes or even crampons just to be sure? Microspikes don't seem to expensive, or alternatively I could rent some crampons but that seems a bit overkill…
I'm looking at doing a short trek in Langtang December 2017. My understanding is that the area was one of the worst hit in the 2015 earthquake but I can find little information regarding the current condition.
My planned route is:
DAY 1 - Syabru-besi to Lama Hotel
DAY 2 - Lama Hotel to New Langtang
DAY 3 - New Langtang to Kyan-jin Gompa
DAY 4 - Kyan-jin Gompa to Kyan-jin Peak
DAY 5 - Kyan-jin Gompa to Ganesh Hotel
DAY 6 - Ganesh Hotel to Syabru-besi
Would this be a decent route for…
