Nepal--consider carefully

Jump to last reply

With recent experience in the Annapurna and Khumbu areas of Nepal, I must state the facts of travel in this region.
The thousands spent on a trip booked in the US or lesser amounts when booked in Nepal will get you the same primitive conditions--stable-like sleeping rooms, filthy toilets and barely edible food. Vast sums of money are being siphoned by travel offices, with the end of the line teahouses charging $1.50 per "double room" and not caring if a minimum of cleanliness is practiced. Tour groups of fit and unfit members march in single file, not able to rest as needed, all coughing and sneezing with the same URI.
In short, the enjoyment of the mountain views becomes secondary to "getting home in one piece".
