Super easy and well planned trek

“I bought the full package for the trek, which included a guide, a porter, all transport and food three times a day.
It was super easy that my guide Elmi could take care of all the transport tickets and help me through to the buses, taxi and plane. When we got to the guesthouses, he would also take care of finding a good room for me, and pay all expenses in the morning. As for water and other drinks, he would keep track of what i owed him, and I payed him back at the end of the trip. A very good guide.

Also my porter Dawa was really helpful in carrying the things I didn't need throughout the day, which helped a lot, since I could focus more the beautiful landscape and overall good things about the trek.”
Spectacular Trek

“I travelled as part of a group of three males, aged 57 to 65. We had one guide and two porters allocated to us. English speaking skills were good. The trek is reasonably demanding and do not attempt it if you are not fit or have not prepared in advance. Each day features an average gain of between 1,000 and 1,500 feet gain. Additional acclimatisation treks featured on three afternoons at higher altitudes to ensure a good outcome for all concerned. Stunning scenery at every turn. Tea house stop opportunities present themselves about every hour or so until the last two days at higher altitude when they thin out.
Tea house accommodation is basic (ie simple wooden beds with foam mattress), so take a sleeping bag and more often than not only cold showers are available as water is heated via solar power. Food: surprisingly good choice at most of the tea houses, freshly cooked and tasty. Little shops at most overnight stops stock most essentials from toilet paper to Mars bars. A mix of squat toilets and western style toilets feature, sometimes communal, sometimes en-suite. Take your own water filtration device to avoid health issues.
Top tip: Do not take the public bus ride from Jomsom to Pokhara as this takes a very slow (7 mph) and bumpy ten hours to get there. Instead, fly from Jomsom airport to Pokhara for c. £90 per person in just 1.5 hours. It is also worth hiring a taxi for the final days drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu rather than catching the bus again. Alternatively, you can fly from Pokhara to Kathmandu.”
