I’m planning a trek starting sometime in mid-April and ending early May. I’m arriving in Kathmandu on 3/15, but I’m volunteering on farm in the eastern region for a month and won’t be ready to start until mid-April. I plan on being back in Kathmandu by 4/12, and spending a few days to work out logisitics, buy a trekking pass, etc. That means tentatively leaving on 4/15.
I’m leaning towards the AC but I’m flexible if people feel strongly about other treks (only exception: Mustang. I don’t have the money for the special pass.) I would like to spend at least a couple weeks on the trail; no rush. I want to take my time, soak it in, enjoy it. I’m an experienced backpacker and relatively fit; I will not be hiring a porter, but if there are other people in the group who chose to do so, great! I would like to go with people who are safety-conscious; because we are not going with a tour company I think it’s all the more important to watch out for each other. I would like to do this trip on the cheap. The budget reflects ~$20/day for 17 days. I will need to be back in Kathmandu by May 4.
If you think you may be interested hit me up!
