Name Great Nepalese Treks! Annapurna and Everest Base Camp (and 6000m peak) Treks
Hello, I am arriving into Kathmandu on Oct 5th from Tibet. I would like to
arrange and start out quickly on a trip to the annapurna circuit that
includes the annapurna sanctuary. I do not need to have a guide
(though I would not be against a porter-guide if it is something that
you would be interested in) in order to save money. I would be
travelling the standard route at the standard pace that includes rest
days. I am not in a huge rush, so I am not against staying extra at a
place if there is bad weather in order to ensure good views and safe
I hope to arrive back into Katmandu at the end of Oct. and then plan
on arranging a trip to go to the everst basecamp and doing a loop that
includes the Gokyo trek. This is where it gets a bit interesting. I
would like to, while up in the Everest Region, climb one of the 6000+m
peaks such as Mera Peak. In order to do that, I would most likely
need a guide or some trekking company. As I have not reached Nepal
yet, I am not sure how it will all work, but I would love to do the
Everest Base Camp/Gokyo without a guide (again porter-guide is ok) in
order to save money, and then see if the peak climbing portion can be
done with a guide. I would prefer to have just the guide/trekking company for
the peak part and not have this on the whole trek, again in order to
save on some money, however, I do not know how feasible this is yet.
I am sure I will learn a lot when I arrive in Nepal.
The end of my trip to nepal will include some rafting and perhaps some
canyoneering, but I am mainly looking for people to share company
with, laughs with, adventure with, and cost during the treks.
A little about me: I am 27, english speaker. Big into the outdoors
and nature. Fit and quite used to high altitudes. I'm a strong
hiker, but also like to look around and take photos. So I can be fast
and I can be slow.
If you are interested in joining either or both of the treks that
would be awesome. Just let me know.
