  1. Re: Do not Trek with out guide /Porter Register Trekking Trekking Company

    Rishi,

    I agree, "do not trek alone"... but cannot agree with your suggestion one needs to have a guide/porter for the main treks. This is simply not true.

  3. Oct/Nov 2016: Poon Hill & ABC TREKS: Our costs and experiences

    Sorry for cross-posting....

    Just completed our Poon Hill and Annapurna Base Camp treks, and thought people would be interested in our costs.

  4. Re: Heading back to Nepal Oct 23 for a short trek -- Poon Hill & ABC

    That's the plan. Hope it works....

    We seem to get hit with urge about 12-15 months after the preceding trip. This "nepal-sick" ness is an expensive illness -- hmm, how much spent after 12 trips...
  5. Heading back to Nepal Oct 23 for a short trek -- Poon Hill & ABC

    Hi all,

    Good to see TrekInfo back up and working. What happened to it for a week or so?

    We decided to head back to Nepal during the Oct/Nov "inter-regnum" here in Whistler (time between...

  7. Any changes in immigration procedures on arrival at Kathmandu TIA airport?

    Hi folks,

    Our last time through Kathmandu TIA immigration was August/September 2014. At that time, there were no "visa machines". Just the usual lineups: fill out paper visa application (we had...

    Re: Manang Trek - Partner wanted

    Thorung La more dangerous in monsoon? How so? Not our experience. How will you return from Manang? Walk back? Jeep? Fly (unreliable)?

    Re: Hillary step no longer there?

    Re: EBC Trek via Gokyo and Chola Pass

    Everybody acclimatizes differently.

    Back in 1990 (my very first trek!), we did the schedule (to Kala Pathar) as proposed. It was tough. Some (20%) of our group had to turn back. One trekker in...
  11. Re: Manaslu Circuit, Tsum Valley, Naar Phu Valley plus option for Annapurna Circuit,

    Sorry. Yes, you did write that -- I misinterpreted it.

    As of 2014 it was still an issue concerning 1st-night lodging for unacclimatized trekkers. Meta Kharka was just too far for us, so we had to...
  12. Re: Manaslu Circuit, Tsum Valley, Naar Phu Valley plus option for Annapurna Circuit,

    Actually, there ARE lodges in Nar-Phu!

    In August 2014:

    Meta Kharka: several lodges (most somewhat new)
    Phu: 2-3 lodges; quite basic
    "Nar Phedi": the Gompa may have some rooms available (they...

    Re: Jiri to KP

    Jiri to Lukla is one of our favourites (above Lukla not so much...)!

    I think the schedule provided is a little ambitious, especially in the beginning.

    If you start in Jiri, then trekking to...

    Re: Its That Question again !!!

    We really liked ALCHEMY pizza in 2012.

    But in Summer 2014, they had been kicked out by Hotel Family Home/House/etc.

    Hopefully, they have re-established themselves. Let us know if they have.

    I remember the days of trekking without even thinking of insurance. I'm certain many (young?) trekkers still do this. I'm not sure I disagree with them. But age (and experience) has perhaps made me...

    The April earthquake in Nepal has resulted in thousands of deaths, destroyed buildings and infrastructure, and left many without homes.
