Seeking trekking companions for April and May in Nepal

Open itinerary, but thinking of Helambu, AC, and EBC treks
13 years ago, March 5th 2010 No: 1 Msg: #105810  

I am seeking companions for trekking in Nepal in April and May. I arrive in KTM on April 9 and was planning on starting with the Helambu circuit to get my "trail legs" on, then spending a few days in the capital and then doing AC or EBC. I'd prefer to go without a porter or guide, but would rather not hike alone for safety's sake. I am seeking trekking companions, even if you just want to check in every day or so on the trail. My itinerary is flexible once I arrive.

I am a 27-year old American male ecologist. I have traveling experience in Mongolia, South Africa, Mozambique and Malawi, and trekking experience all around the United States.

Also, could anyone suggest other places (online or physically in KTM), where I might find people looking for traveling partners in Nepal?

Hi. I'm a female solo traveler and I'll arrive in KTM on April 26.
I'm also interested on shorter day treks around Pokhara, as I'll be flying out on May 7th.
I'm interested on visiting villages, Buddhist temples, photography...
I may also be returning to Tibet for a short 5 day trip if anyone is interest.
Let me know.

I'm arriving in Nepal on the 5th May with a friend and hoping to head off pretty quickly to do the AP circuit. We haven't sorted anything out as yet, but were hoping to do it with a few people so we don't get sick of each other. Get in touch if you are around then?

Does anyone know if May is a good time to do the circuit?

I already went to Nepal and didn't get to trek because the country was under general strike.
Pls do not write to me about trekking anymore as I won't be able to help. Have safe and happy travels. patricia Reply to this

No More Strikes but Striking Rain

No more strikes, since people are busy preparing for Tourism Year 2011. But we have heavy rain these days. People are enjoying fresh air in Kathmandu.
