My name is Ariana, I’m a 26 years old French Canadian girl planning on going to Nepal alone. I’ve never visited Nepal nor Asia for that matter…but I’ve been to many other places in the world! I’m very thrilled about this trip, but would love to hike along with a small group of people without necessarily booking through an agency. Although I’ve done many short treks in the past, I’ve never experienced a trek of that extent before. I’m in relatively good shape, but I’m still recovering from a road accident so it’s hard for me to predict my average pace. Ideally, I was planning to do the ACT in 15 days if possible. Haven’t made my mind about hiring a guide or not. As much as I want to encourage the local economy, I’ll be traveling on a very tight budget since I’d love to keep traveling for several months. Splitting the cost of guide seems fair and reasonable to me!
I’ll be arriving in Kathmandu in mid-October, spending a few days to explore the Kathmandu Valley area and jumping on the ACT around the last week of October. My plans are still loose so hopefully I can find some fellow trekkers to join me in this amazing adventure at some point!
Cheers and keep me posted 🙂Reply
