Any help appreciated.
I'm kind of new to this, planning for a big trekking trip in May 2013.
I would like to do mostly trekking and presumably hit the big stops on the Annapurna loop, including Everest base camp.
I also want to include Tibet and stops at a few monasteries. (China and India border crossing would be a plus!).
I have been told it is easier/cheaper to book packages once you arrive in Kathmandu. I don't mind doing this since I am traveling alone.
I want to do mostly trekking but wanted to ask you guys:
1. Is it possible to see all of these relatively cheaply?
2. Where would you recommend starting? Kathmandu?
3. Do you know any tour company guies with similar packages?
Last but not least, I am trying to do this for as cheap as possible. Don't need fancy hotels, but any package with food would be great. Touring with big groups or buses not necessary.
I have seen some good packages for 10-15 days at about $1,400 for the tour. Expecting $1,400 for plane ticket. Do you think I can do something extraordinary for about $3,500????
Any help appreciated!!
