Combining the ACT with Upper Mustang trek!

I’m thinking of combining the ACT with Upper Mustang trek. The idea is to take a jeep up to Chame, take a walk through Manang and Thorung-la to Muktinath, and then instead of completing the trip through Jomsom, to go north, to the Upper Mustang.

I am well aware that I would need a special permit for that – the question if this itinerary makes sense at all (am thinking about end of April – early May for this). How much time would you plan for this?

Is Sleeping Bag needed at Everest Base Camp?

Hi, planning for Everest Basecamp Trek 🏔 end of November. Do I really need a sleeping bag? I didn’t need it for Annapurna Circuit this month.

Honest opinion please!

Best Trekking Equipment!

Hi all,

we need some recommendations regarding the best trekking equipment and would be pleased to get some help 🙂

We are doing Gokyo Trek in combiation with Ama Dablam BC and returning via Renjo La Pas. We’re asking ourselves if we need the super warm down jacket or just do layering with a more light down jacket 😉

So, how are the temperatures during the day at our hightest spots Ama Dablam BC, Gokyo Ri, maybe Ngozumpa Tse, Renjo La Pas?

If it rains in lower Khumbu region (Namche Bazar for example) – this will only be a litte bit of rain right now, correct? So we maybe can leave the hardshell jacket at home?

I think we will need snow spikes as well for the Renjo la Pas?

Thank you guys 🙂

Solo at Annapurna Circuit Trek

Hi everyone! Will be doing ACT solo without a guide nor porter next week. But are there guides in Manang who I can potentially hire for a few days to do ice lake trek and crossing Thorong La until Muktinath?

A small side question: Understood that maps.me works great for offline maps on ACT, but what phone apps do you guys use on the trail to track distance trekked and elevation?

Hotels teetering on the edge amid the coronavirus closure have decided to cut their losses by remaining shuttered for six months, as they don’t expect tourists to visit Nepal for at least another year.

Officials said more than 3,000 hotels will send their staff home because they can’t keep paying their salaries with no revenue coming in due to the lockdown.

Even if the lockdown is lifted, the tourism industry will take time to recover because travellers will not immediately book foreign trips. The hotels will all be bankrupt by the time tourism rebounds as they have to pay staff salaries while income has come down to zero.
