    Re: Thamel Guest Houses

    We stayed in Thamel at the start of our trek last time. On the way back we stayed in Boudhanath . Much more calm and interesting place then Thamel. Sorry but I don't remember where we stayed.

    How about just renting a satellite phone for your trip. Call when and were you want.

    Re: Some final questions

    We left Ledar expecting to stay at High Camp. Arrived there at 10 and decided just to go on over the pass. It worked well for us but we are good at altitude.

    Re: Some final questions

    Two years ago my wife looked at the middle trail to Tilicho and said no way. We went up (and up, then way down) the high trail instead. That was fun but much work. On the way out she said no way to...

    Re: Making my wife comfortable on the trek

    My wife and I did these treks last year. She was very happy to wear a skirt that was mid-calf long. This was cooler to wear on the humid lowlands days. The real benifit was in the bathrooms. She...

    Re: Water purifying tablets

    We used the Steri-Pen on the AC and ABC in 09. It worked well and seemed to amuse the kids at the lodges. Be sure to bring the instruction book as it is a bit complex with the assorted flashing...

    Re: Clothes to wear after a long days trek

    Crocks. They may look funny but are great for post hiking. They also work well for crossing streams and with thick socks are warm enough for cold nights.

    Softshells are good for a day of backcountry sking but too heavy/bulky for backpacking. Check out the Marmot DriClime jacket.It will handle many different conditions.

    Re: Water purification

    We used the SteriPen this Oct for AC and ABC. Worked fine and no waiting for chemicals to work. One set of batteries for two or three liters a day for the whole trip.

    OK, Yes it's expensive, but we stayed at the Fishtail Lodge. Nice rooms, wonderful gardens and the view.... Ganesh, at the front desk, went all out to help us on flight and guide issues.

    Re: Tents

    We did not take the tent. Thanks..good call. It was a bit of musical chairs near busy places like the middle of ABC (Bamboo), We sometimes stopped hiking at 1:00 to ensure we got a room.

    Thanks for the replies. The Sanctuary does sound interesting and we don't mind weather. What is the difference between a Hindu teahouse and a Nepal teahouse? Sharon the other treks you mentioned look...
