Hi guys,

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…

Hi there,

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…

I am arriving to Kathmandu airport at 12-30 by Biman and would like to go to Pokhara at 15-40 by Yeti.
Are 3 hours enough to get visa on arrival and check in to the next flight?
Do I need to confirm the ticket or do anything with my Yeti flight in advance?

Thanks!

Hey there,
I am planning to go trekking from the beginning of November until Christmas mostly in the Everest Region. Other than flying into Lukla, I would like to start trekking in Jiri or Shivalaya.

On the way to Lukla, I want to do the side trip to Dudh Kunda as a self-supporting camping trek.
From what I've read this is a doable, nice and scenic trek for which I am looking for one or two fellow trekkers. They should have some trekking experience as well as all the required equipment. Of…

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…
