    Default 6-7 day trek- suggestions?

    I only have a very limited time for my trek. Can anyone suggest any routes for a 6-7 day trek? Arriving in Kathmandu around the 1st November.

    Thanks!

    Thumbs up Helambu trail

    Hi,

    One of the forgotten trails. You start from Sundaryal and hike up to Chisopani. From Chisopani it's possible to go to Kutumsang, but perhaps you prefer to go slower, there are more lodges on the way to Kutumsang.
    From Kutumsang the trail goes through the jungle and than gently goes to Mangengoth and Tharapati at approx. 3500 mtr.
    From there you go down to Melamchigoan, it's about 1000 mtrs down through the forest. If you continue you can reach Tharkegyang same day (Tharkegyang lodge!) From there are two ways to Sermathang Kakani.
    The upper way starting from Tharkegyang lays just above the monastry in the village. Better ask for the direction, once on the trail you can't miss it.
    From Kakani, steep down to Melamchi Pull bazaar. From there you catch the bus to the road coming from direction of Jiri. Here you have to take the bus to Kathmandu. In totall it will take you 6 days going on slowly.
    If you need more info or perhaps to contact a guide do not hesitate to contact me.

    Wish you a nice trek.

    Helambu is the way to go. No need to waste time with flights, weather etc. It is a short drive outside Kathmandu and will offer some very nice views and a taste of trekking.

    Default similar time frame

    Lindsay,

    I'm currently working with a non-profit here in Kathmandu, and I am interested in going away from Nov. 1 during the Tihar holidays on a short trek as well. Did you decide where you are going to go? I'm also having trouble deciding where to go (with the short time frame), but I've contact a women's treking guide company based out of Pokhara called 3 sisters, I'm sure you've heard of them. They're trying to help me set up a trek, but I'm open to more options.

    Let me know if you're interested in hiking together.

    Best,
    Jannie

    Default Trekking

    Hi, my name is Iona from Australia. I was also hoping to do a 7 day trek but i will be leaving later than you (Lindsay) i think. I was hoping to start my trek on Friday 11 November. If anyone was thinking of a similar plan I'd be happy to trek in a group (I'm not sure if I like the idea of trekking on my own). I am currently volunteering in an orphanage in Pokhara and I will be here until I start my trek.

    thanks
    iona

    Mate,

    You are most def. not an australian so kindly stop with the nonsense. You're english and esp. your spelling is terrible.

    If you are not an aussie or any other nationality and are merely trying to get business by pretending to be someone you are not, a word of advice:
    dont.

    Other foreign travellers will also notice this and avoid you like the plague.
