UPCOMING TREKS FOR 2018


The Easier Mustang was fantastic, from those who trekked in from the bottom, Lee and Paddy, to those who used the jeeps as and when, June and me,  and to those who trekked wherever and whenever they could, Phil, Veita, Bruce, Eddy and Lyndall.    What a top group.  Very achievable itinerary so can't wait to do it all again this year.     Same with the Solu District.  Great little trek with really good people.  Would spend an extra night in Patale next time for better acclimatisation.  Four of our group went early to do *good works* up there, another plan for those seeking a bit more involvement.   Pike Peak was relatively easy.    So, let's see how we could do it all again this year.


Upcoming Nepal treks

 

So, to 2018.  
APRIL 1 - 22 Gokyo over Rinjo La.    Nice n slow over Namche, Thamo, Thame and then the high pass.    Dorje assures me the view from Rinjo La is even better than Gokyo Ri, hard to believe!  I was in Thame with Kancha in April.  It is so lovely I want to spend three nights there.  Great trails lead out from the village and it would make great acclimatisation for the pass.  I have not done this pass before so it will be new for me.    Also, brining new friend Ekkehard with me.   He has not trekked previously but we will make an achievable itinerary.    We would return to Namche via Machermo, Dole, Phortse Tenga, and Kangzuma, Kumjung and Kunde.  Great trek over three weeks with time enough in Kathmandu for shopping and sightseeing.   I am writing the itinerary over the next couple of days so 'stay tuned'.

Flights in and out of Lukla.   Individual porters (the usual suspects) and SLOWLY!!   Price of $3750, YES, YOU CAN DO THIS.

 

October 21 – November 7, 2018: EASIER MUSTANG. 18 days in Nepal with two nights before and after in Kathmandu and two nights before and after trekking in Pokhara. The trek itself starts with a jeep to Tatopani and then a jeep to Kalopani next day though you could trek that day if you wanted to. From Kalopani we will make a fabulous trek to Tukche, via Larjung, then Jomsom via Marpha. From Jomsom we trek to Kagbeni, with a short side trek to Thiri in the afternoon. Next day is the hardest trek, up to Jarkot but we should be able to hire ponies. From Jarkot it is uphill to Muktinath, our final destination, but only for an hour. After visiting the holy temples, both Hindu and Buddhist, it is nearl all gentl downhill to Jhong. The villages on the north side of the Muktinath Valle were previously in Upper Mustang but are now open to trekkers. Hardly anyone walks this way and very few make an overnight stop. We will trek back to Jomsom via Kagbeni once more, time to visit the 16th century monastery perhaps. The trek back to Jomsom can be done over Windy Peak for a more demanding day out. Flights back to Pokhara were not available last year but we hope for better things this year. The jeep ride down was a bit long but we did it over one good day and were back in our hotel in Pokhara just on dusk. If you fancy trekking all the way in from Nyanpul, over Gorepani and Pun Hill, we can arrange this with an extra five days on trek and a five day earlier start date. Read the Trek Report from last season (writing now, posting soon) for a better idea of how this trek pans out. Full itinerary on this page very soon.

Because this trek has eight days NOT trekking, and transport options are available almost every day, it is ideal for first time trekkers who are not sure of their abilities but challenging enough for experienced walkers if all the trekking options are taken up. The Anapurnas are magnificent and Muktinath itself is a magical place.

 

As with all our Treks, the prices include EVERYTHING, individual porters (properly paid, clothed and insured), all meals and accommodation everywhere. Your trek permit, transport and internal flight are covered. You only need cash for alcohol, personal items and of course a generous tip for your porter. Do bear these inclusions in mind when comparing prices. Nowadays some companies do not include food which is the main expense on trek. Other companies sometimes give their porters more than one bag to carry. Best news is that I come with you…..all the way, every time.
