Is Wi-Fi on the trail a good or bad sign?

Posted by Adventurer707 on 3/11/2015 at 13:41

I have been thinking about this question ever since I re-visted the Annapurna circuit this year. The previous time I visited, if guesthouses had lights and electricity it would be kind of a big deal. However this time, guesthouse owners were bragging about free Wi-Fi, in the middle of the mountains in remote villages! I have detailed my experience in this post on my experience trekking the Annapurna circuit just at the time of the devastating Nepal earthquake.Would love to know people's thought ...

Nepal: An introduction

Posted by somtam2000 on 1/2/2013 at 21:27

For many backpackers, Nepal is their Shangri-La. Where else can you have so many life-changing experiences on a budget of dollars per day? Nepal is synonymous with the Himalayas, and the capital Kathmandu lies in a valley before the great mountains.

Dal Bhat Power: EBC and Three High Passes

Posted by nodisitas on 26/7/2014 at 22:52

Dal bhat is what got us through our 37-day trek in the Solukhumbu area (April 3 to May 10, 2014). Dal bhat is the national Nepalesestaple: a huge plate of rice, lentil soup and vegetable curry, which always comes with a free refill! It got us from Jiri to Namche Bazaar, over the Three High Passes (Renjo La, Cho La, Kongma La), up Kalar Pattar (near EBC) and several other view-point peaks, and then out to Tumlingtar. We started our journey in Jiri, which is a 6-8 hoursbusrit from Kathmandu. We hi ...

Nepal general advice / Travel from Nepal to Thailand by Land

Posted by adammcintyre on 17/9/2013 at 01:53

Hi everyone, I'm flying into Kathmandu from BKK next week. After spending a few days exploring Kathmandu, my goal is to organise myself for a trek up to EBC. *Could anyone please recommend* a good place to stay whilst in Kathmandu and how I go about getting to it - Taxi? Price? Also, after my Nepalese excursion, I need to figure out how to get back to Thailand. I want a little adventure, so preferably avoiding air travel. I have been looking at possible routes: Nepal > India > Bang ...

Hi Guys, For anyone going to Nepal and looking for a unique experience with a wonderful family and some beautiful kids, check out the below site. They are a relatively new orphanage and have only 9 children (which is great because it really allows you to get to know the kids). 2 of the children are the couples own, they've taken on 7 children for various different deprived backgrounds and clothed, washed, fed them and ensured they get a good education. All this with no help from the government ...
