The upcoming general elections for state and federal government of Nepal has brought smile to the Nepalese tourism entrepreneurs. The election is going to take place in two phases on November 10 and December 7 of 2017.
The answer is fifty-fifty. It is not impossible to trek alone in some major tourist trails of Nepal such as Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp, Annapurna Circuit and Langtang-Kyanjin Gompa. However, we strongly advise you NOT to trek alone in high altitude trekking areas of Nepal.
Trekking in Nepal on your own and without any support staff to carry your backpack is a big challenge. In general terms, the support staff is known as porter. They are also regarded as mountain transports. They are strong and familiar with the hill walks. Some people like to accept this challenge though.
It's been over two years that the massive earthquake hit Nepal. Simultaneously, the Nepal-India border blockade was another misery to Nepal's travel industry. The transitional political situation is a major obstacle responsible to her uniform economic growth.
We are glad to announce that one of our tours – Everest Base Camp Trek – has been named an Unordinary Trip of the Month by InfoHub.com, the #1 travel portal on the net specializing in the outof-ordinary, special interest vacations. It's good to see that Trekking Encounters, with its climbing, mountaineering vacations, fits in this category perfectly well).
