  1. Hello Ashish!
    Do you have a detail plan about the route you are going to take.
    Would it be possible to start trekking on 22th or 23th of October?
    Who is joining you right now?
    I will arrive on 20th of October (Kathmandu).

    Would be a pleasure to join your group!

    Best wishes,

    Christian

    • Hi Christian,

      I’ve updated the plan about the route we’re gonna take, you can check it out in the description which might not go according to the schedule but the goal is to finish the trek within 10-12 days at max.
      Actually we were pretty much excited and sparky to leave as early as possible but we had to postpone our departure date due to the Dashain festival. So we shall leave only at 24 oct, we’re sorry. 🙂
      If you still wanna join us and you don’t know what to do here in Kathmandu, i suggest you to visit the following places:

      1. Boudhanath Stupa
      2.Durbar Square
      3.Bhaktapur
      4.Patan
      5.The Pashupatinath Temple
      6.Kopan Monastery (great place to meditate)
      7.Swayambhunath Stupa

      Or you can leave to Pokhara and meet us at besisahar on 24th oct.

      Best Regards,
      Ashish

  2. Hello Ashish!

    Count me in.

    Plan sounds great and ambitious. Because of the high altitude 2-3 days for acclimatisation will be no mistake 😉

    Best wishes,

    Christian

  3. Hi Ashish
    I needed some advice from you.. Is it helpful to get the rupee exchanged to NPR?
    What sort of daily expenses are you looking at with three meals and sleeping over at tea houses? In planning to keep my expenses to a bare minimum and wanted some idea about the food and lodging prices.
    Cheers

    • Hi Siddartha,

      Yes, it would be much easier for you to perform daily transactions with NPR. INR are accepted only in few places and of low denominations.

      Well, it depends, if you’re near the mountains they gonna charge you more since there aren’t any proper means of transportation. On those region the three meal would cost you around $10.

      But if you’re around places where means of transportation are easy you can have the three meals under $5.

      ***Note: i’m talking about tea houses here not some fancy and cheesy restaurants.

      The price of lodging also differs according to the places where you stay. Most of the hotels charge less for the lodging however they try to assimilate by high food prices. Some places charge you per person $2-$3 for the stay whereas some places charge you per room i.e $6-$10
      If you’re in a group it’s probably gonna cost you much less.

      I suggest you to try to communicate and stay with the locals. They’ll charge you less and also you’d have a great opportunity to know about their culture.

      Best Regards!

  4. Thanks Ashish!Was a bit scared with rumors of pricey meals and lodging.. That put some doubts to rest.
    Will be starting from Besisahar on 24th oct so might bump into you! Till then ciao!

    • You’re welcome! Have a safe trip 🙂
