    Re: Update from Nepal - Annapurna treks

    I had good luck in Chitwan, plenty of rhino, but I envy you the sloth bear. I'll trade you a grizzly for one? A "big cat" ? Great birds, my fave was a Chestnut-headed Fish Eagle that I got good looks...

    Re: Manaslu or Naar and Phu in April

    Hi Huw: I'm kind of thinking about Manaslu, too. BTW, here's a link to the best of my AC photos, no captions but you can figure it out.

    Re: Chitwan?

    I did get down to Chitwan after my AC trek, and enjoyed it immensely! Wish I'd have had a few more days to spend there. It was quite hot in late April, 37-38 Celcius in the heat of the day, but I did...

    Re: AC Pt1 (Besisahar - Muktinath) or ABC?

    They're working at it! One can still walk all the way up and over the Thorung la with pretty minimal road time, but the road is seen and HEARD (blasting, jackhammers, etc) more than one would like....

    Re: NY Times AC article.

    I'm back in New Mexico now, but we had little trouble when we were there. There was a bandh on the day we flew in (March 29) but we didn't hear of anything after that. We saw no Maoist activity on...

    Re: short treks around Pokhara

    We came down from Poon Hill to Ghorepani to Ulleri and spent the night in Hile. This is a great section of the trail, but it's a long descent of nearly 5500 ft with an estimated 8000 steps from Poon...

    Re: NY Times AC article.

    I just got back from a fairly quick trip over the AC, 19 days. We walked all the way down the Kali Gandaki, except for a bus from Ghasa to Tatopani, which we probably would have skipped if we'd known...

    Silvertops, how many nights did you spend in the villages on the east side of the river? With a Nepali guide, do you judge it reasonable to find accommodations for a group of 7, with 1 guide and 4...

    Many many thanks, Silvertops. Exactly the info I was seeking. We'll print out the maps. When were these done, are they current as of last year, or? The web is so great for this stuff.

    Re: NY Times AC article.

    Well, that's really a shame. I should have gotten off my butt long before now, I guess. BUT, I'll soon be going down the Kali Gandaki, one way or the other. I saw a map detail yesterday that someone...

    So just an isolated incident or so to date? Did they call for a general stoppage? TIA for any info, Alan.

    I'll be there in a couple of weeks. What's the "liaison officer" rule you refer to? First I've heard of it. Is it just for the Mustang?
