    I'd quite like to know which lodge that is, so I wont bother him by going there.

    It may be understandable but I do think lodge owners could also well remember that their business started out
    and...

    Redders your friend probably knows better than me about the flights. I haven't been meaning to take any, I just repeat what I have heard on that.

    Re: Trek info

    That is really sad. Donors from abroad has given vast amounts of money to help,
    but due to incompetence in the government none of that money has come to use.

    but have not thought I had anything useful to post, sitting

    Re: New Regulation Compulsory trekking Guides

    There are, obviously, no 100% guarantees. When the shit hits the fan and
    limbs and lives are at stake only the actual trust a guide has earned with his
    group so far on the trek counts, not any...

    Re: Tarmac Road Jiri to Lukla

    That article is full of errors. The reason for high prices in places like Gokyo and
    Lobuche etc, is mostly because of price cartels, not transport. A pack of
    biscuits that cost 30 Rs in Namche...

    Re: Tumlingtar-Namche-3 passes-Lukla

    May I ask what are those 90', 60' etc? I don't understand.

    Are you sure there is a lodge now at Gothe Bazaar? As I understand it the old
    one there was swept away by a flooding river last year.
