Langtang and Helambu
I am arriving in Kathmandu on December the 14th and looking to organise a trek to the Langtang region for around 2 weeks. I am more interested in finding a like-minded trekking partner than anything else so I’ll tell you a bit about myself.
I am a 26 year old kiwi, love reading real books on paper, passionate about nature and looking after the environment, a bit of a math and physics nerd and love to do handstands and back flips. I am looking to do a trek that combines a bit of physical exertion and stunning scenery and to learn about the Nepalese way of life and culture. So…probably looking to hire a guide because a) I think you get more insight into the culture and language – I would love to learn some Nepalese!, b) they know all the sneaky side trips and c) then I am giving back to the community who has lived on this land for so long (ensuring I don’t go through an agency that fleeces all the money and doesn’t pay their guides well).
I am not particularly rigid with my plans, as I like to take things as they come, so feel free to give suggestions if you are on the same page. Additional to this – ideally I was thinking to go as early as possible on the / a trek as it will be heading into winter; but i am in Nepal till the 16th of January, so happy to combine with anyone if they are coming a bit later.
If this sounds like you, flick me an email with a bit about yourself and what you are keen to do and maybe we can meet up in Nepal!
