Travel Video: Nepal

  1. Hi,
    I’ve seen your travel video in youtube about ABC trek. Like you, I would like to do the same journey too this October 2017. And I would like to do it solo. No porter and no tour guide. Do you think it’s possible to do it within 8-9 days? And what are the challenging trail you’ve encountered during the trek? Thanks! 🙂


    1. Heeey Runaway Ninja! Oh yes it’s very possible to do it solo! I did it solo as well and I’m totally fine.

      Actually easy or not, it depends on your experiences on hiking. But I think we can say the ABC Trek is easy since I found a lot of families with elderly people.

      Be sure to read a lot about AMS, and prepare meds for it! Since I got AMS on MBC and it was pretty bad


  2. Thanks for the response Timo. When did you hike to ABC? I don’t really have good background in hiking as I only do day hikes. I haven’t experienced camping at the mountain.

    Where did you buy your trekking gears? And can I avail the meds immediately and anywhere? What about the permits? Also, the accommodation, are they fully booked?

    See? I got a lot of questions. And I was trying to find a blog entry about this trip of yours and they were in Indonesian language. So I can’t really understand. Huhu.


    1. I hiked to ABC on 26 – 30 December 2016. There are no camping skills required! As lodge houses and restaurants are available along the trek. The lodges scattered between 1-2 hours of hike, so you can manage your own pace.

      I brought my trekking gears from Indonesia (boots, winter jacket, trekking pants). If you don’t have, you can easily rent them at Kathmandu or Pokhara at a good price. Meds, it’s better if you prepare it in advance, as there are no clinics along the trek. Permits, you need to apply it in Tourism Office at either Kathmandu or Pokhara. You will need 4000 NPR for two permits.

      Sorry for the Indonesian posts! As I just want to contribute about backpacking in Nepal for my fellow Indonesian travellers. But feel free to ask more questions! I’m more than happy to help you.
