  1. Hello Casey, I might bei interested in joining your group to Annapurna Base Camp. That’s the Trek I am planning to take. Since I will be arriving in Kathmandu on the 29 th Sept early in the morning I was thinking of a departure on the 1 st or 2 nd Oct but 3 rd is still okay. The organisation seems to be fine. And apart from that your expectations seem to match mine. Have any other people joined the group already?
    Greetings from Bente

    • Hi Bente! Thanks for getting in touch. I only posted this trip yesterday so you are the first to reply, but if the company finds anyone else they are going to let me know as well. If you are ok with the plans, then feel free to join! The main thing I wanted was to make sure we spent a night up at the base camp, so I’m happy if people want to modify other details. The only thing I’m not flexible on is dates unfortunately, as I don’t arrive in Pokhara until the 2nd October and fly out on the 12th.

    • Thanks for your quick response. I have conntacted outshine adventures but havent received a reply yet. They dont seem to be on the quick side.But Hope to hear from them soon. Have you arranged the Trip from Kathmandu to pokhara with them too?

    • Strangely enough, one of the reasons why I chose them was because they emailed me back instantly! Perhaps I got them on a good day. The man I have been talking with is Gokul, he was really helpful and has already started organising my permits. Hopefully he emails you back soon!
      I haven’t organised the bus trip yet. I have a day in Kathmandu so I thought I might just arrange it then as it sounds like there is plenty of buses.
