9 days to leave Kathmandu, any tour suggestion?

Just finished the Mardi Himal – Poon hill trek, currently i have 9 days left before I fly out from Kathmandu. Can you suggest me some places around the central region for approximately 7 days? Preferably, I would like to fit in some small villages around Chitwan, Bandipur, Lumbini, and something else. Would be great if I could avoid long transits.. If you could suggest it in a chronological order, I would be very grateful.

Trail shoes versus boots for hiking the EBC trek, which one is better?

Hello all,

shoes, I was curious to know your thoughts on trail shoes versus boots for hiking the EBC trek in early March?

Thanks everyone for your wisdom 😀

Everest base camp on low budget, is it possible?

Hey everyone, I’m considering trying to do Everest base camp in late nov/Dec, but unfortunately don’t have a huge budget. I would prefer to use a local guide to help support them, and I also don’t have any trekking equipment with me so would need to rent or buy.

I have seen some package tours with all cost included so have a rough idea but if you use a local guide how much would you expect to pay? And also for the accommodation along the way?

Alternatively if need be, how hard is it to trek solo and how busy is it around this time with others on the route?

Also I am still a little confused about options to get from Kathmandu to lukla… some websites seem to suggest you can also drive between the two and some say flying or hiking is the only route.

Thanks for any help 😊
