Tips

  • Wake up with the sunrise and begin each day early to take advantage of the finest weather and clearest view to the peaks. It also helps to dodge the blazing sunlight of midday and put you into each day's destination early, which means more time to explore!
  • Carry more local currency than you think you'll need. Exchanging foreign bills is difficult in remote locations, and you'll be glad to be able to treat yourself to a tall beer at the end of the tougher days. And don't expect credit cards to buy you anything beyond the airport!
  • Your feet are your livelihood up there, so pack athletic wraps or ankle braces on the off-chance that the rough trails do some damage to your joints. Also, invest in strong-soled boots or trail runners, preferably waterproof, for trekking through snow and over jagged rocks.
  • Pack clothes that layer easily - different sized sweaters and close-fitting shirts that can be removed easily. The temperatures range from hot to freezing depending on the sunlight, and you'll want to adjust easily. Invest in a down or synthetic down jacket that compresses well and will keep you comfy at night and in the windier heights.
  • Plan to get a porter or guide after landing in Lukla. Not only are you supporting the local economy and providing a much-needed job, but you can travel with only a daypack and trust the heavier load to the heartier Sherpas. They sometimes make good friends, and often help point out the more elusive views of the Himalayan peaks.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
