everest trek Dos and donts May 12, 2011
I just got back from nepal and had a blast. I did the 3 passes trek with everest base camp in there. then after i went to pokhara and did the annapurna sanctuary trek..

I recommend to do the sanctuary first. its lower in altitude and will help you get used to trekking. trekking definitely beats you up. Altitude is no joke either.

must brings:

water purifier tabs

wind breaker


peanut butter

chocolate bars

sun block and lip stuff


book a guide and porter once you get to nepal. lukla is a good place. it saves you alot of money and hassle.

allow enough time to acclimatize. don;t be the victim of high altitude sickness. trust me i got it and it was aweful

bring DIAMOX

try new food

tip your guides and porters


say youll get water later.. stay well hydrated and you never know when youll be able to get water next. note water is readily available in the more touristy areas but over passes etc it may not be.

Annapurna Basecamp Jun 18, 2011
If you are stuck for time and strapped for cash, the Annapurna base camp trek is definitely the right choice. Its a 7-10 day trek depending on a side trip to Poon Hill. Another factor you have to consider if you do not need rest days to acclimatize compared to the Everest base camp. The views are incredible along the whole route and camping at the ABC (Annapurna Base Camp) is cold but well worth it.
