The Buff is a must for a Himalayan trekThe Buff: a versatile must for a Himalayan trek

One of the best single pieces of gear you can bring on a trekking trip is The Buff. This versatile product is so popular on a Himalayan trek they even have a Buff with a map of the Everest area in Nepal printed on it. You can use a Buff as a head band, scarf, neck gaiter, balaclava…in fact the company touts 17 different ways to use a Buff on their website (http://www.planetbuff.com/how-to-wear.html). These things wash and dry quickly and easily and have a long useful life. I was first turned on to The Buff by an ex-girlfriend who bought me one for my birthday. I’ve always just used a bandana but the Buff is warm enough to use as a neck gaiter and filters out the dust on the trail when used as a face mask. When its time for it to be washed, I just use it as a wash cloth in river or solar shower.

Trekking in Upper Mustang, Nepal.

Some thoughts when selecting the proper trek grade

Establishing grades for our Himalayan treks has always been a challenge. It is near to impossible because individual perceptions about what is and isn't hard will always exist. What is easy for one person can be difficult to someone else.

The beautiful Mount Dhaulagiri in Nepal.We have been organizing the incredible trek around Mount Dhaulagiri since 2007. This is a challenging trek crossing two high passes over 16,500 feet / 5,000 meters.

Beginning with a short flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara, we board our group bus for the drive to Beni, take lunch and make the afternoon walk to our first camp at Tatopani. For the next three days the trail passes through picturesque farming villages with views of Dhaulagiri and the surrounding mountains to the north. These first few days of Dhaulagiri Circuit are always very hot and humid as Tatopani is at an altitude of only 2,500 feet / 850 meters.

Small train of yaks descending from Everest Base CampAfter 28 years of traveling to Nepal there is one thing I have learned very well…people’s expectations and reality can only meet once they land in Kathmandu.

Despite our best attempts to prepare people for their trekking trip, there will always be a sense of uncertainty and unanswered questions. Looking through guide books, blogs and other related articles can not prepare you for the sights, sounds and smells of Nepal.

Cycling across Tibet in 1995.

Once you step out the front door the adventure begins

Leaving home for the airport, every traveler starts thinking about what they forgot to pack. It’s human nature, right? Departing for a multiple-week trek into South Asia’s Himalayas, it’s not always easy to pick up a replacement article of clothing or other travel necessity you left sitting on the kitchen table, but somehow you’ll get by. Even we meticulous list makers will forget at least one important item.

Trekking to Lo Manthang in Mustang, Nepal.

The Mustang region in Nepal remains one of the least known, least visited part of the Himalayas

Getting to Mustang is no easy thing. One must first fly from Kathmandu to Pokhara. The next day you take another flight north to Jomsom and then hike or drive to the small town of Kagbeni. Once here, you are now ready to begin your trek. There are very basic teahouses throughout the trek to Lo Manthang, the capital of the Mustang region, but camping is still the best way to undertake this journey.

The Road to Manang

Posted by on in Himalayan and Worldwide Trekking

Looking down on the beautiful valley of Manang.

Despite the new road reaching Manang Village, the Annapurna region remains one of the most beautiful in the world

After decades of debate, the remote trans-Himalayan district of Manang is now connected by a jeep road. The main impact on the trekking industry in this spectacular region, is there is now regular jeep service and it looks like Manang will prosper from the connectivity.
