I keep seeing people carry big bags on pictures that are in group tours but I’m wondering is it necessary to have a big bag if you have porters carrying everything for you, if so what do you have in the hiking bag?
Please advise if I have to exchange dollars to rupees or I can pay dollars in Kathmandu and EBC trek? Which place has the best currency rate?
Plan the EBC trip Nov 2023, will just hire a guide cum porter, is it okay not to book tea house in advance during the high season?
I am currently in Muktinah, and I need to be in Pokhara on Wednesday. What is the best way to fill in my final days? I want to go to poon hill but I don’t know how to do it. What steps can I make and how can I move from one place to another (bus would be great)?
Planning to travel next year April by jeep from Pokhara to Muktinath. It would be over 2 / 3 days with a night in Marpha and one night Kagbeni. Then driving back to Tatopani. A family trip with two 12 year olds. Anyone has any thoughts on this? How adventurous is the travel? From what I understand it takes 4 hrs from pokhara to tatopani where we stop for lunch then 2 hrs to marpha. About 2 hrs to kagbeni and half hr from kagbeni to muktinath. Then 5 hrs down to tatopani from where we will start our trek into the sanctuary.
I am completely new in this but me and my friend are planning to do EBC spring. And wondering if a guide is a must for first time or you can do it on your own to save some costs?
I hope this message finds you well and you’re having a wonderful day!
Quick question for y’all – I have hiked the Annapurna Circuit a few years back in trail
The trail shoes I currently hike in are Hoka Soeedgoat 5’s.
Also…do you recommend Gators?
Thanks everyone for your wisdom
We are leaving for Lukla tomorrow morning and starting on the three passes track! We heard there is a lot of snow on the passes. Is this correct?
Looking for advice on general packing/packing list for a months visit from 10th Nov!
Mardi Himal, adventuring, general tourist stuff etc. Any advice much appreciated!
Last minute plan and coming on my own!
Hi everyone! We are looking to connect Annapurna Circuit with Mardi Himal trek and we thought about taking a jeep from Marpha or Jonsom to Ghandruk or Landruk. Anyone has done it before or something similar??? Thanks in advance
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?
Am looking for best recommendations for water purification please?
Thanks in advance for all tips
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!
Hi, I finished the Langtang trek yesterday and am thinking of starting the ABC in 3 days. I slept 3 nights in Kyanjin Gompa. I’m a little short on time and have 8-9 days maximum for the trek. Does anyone know if I will still be acclimatized for the ABC from the Langtang trek? Wondering how slowly I need to plan my ascent on the ABC. Thanks!!
Hi everyone, I’m planning to trek annapurna tour or EBC or three passes trek in January with friends but we were wondering if we would find a lodge every night. Does anyone have recent experience of these treks in January ? Thank you very much !
