Things You Can Do With A Nepal Visa: Hike Everest in Solitude

April 16th, 2011
Nepal is a backpacker's paradise, but while it's known for its absolutely stunning scenery, it's not known for providing solitude. Most backpackers look at the heavily-trafficked main trails as an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. But some of us are a little more misanthropic. We prefer to walk alone. Now, my fellow misanthropes can have their cake and eat it, too, so to speak: A relatively new loop trail, the Three Passes Trek, takes you around the Himalayas and through Everest Base Camp, while avoiding the crowds for most of the route. New York Times travel writer Alex Hutchinson recently hiked the route with his wife, and from his description it sounds just as spectacular as any trail in Nepal. Check it out: "Behind us, looming above a turquoise glacial lake, was


Nepal Visa Requirements for the Great Himalayan Trail

March 20th, 2010
Backpackers, rejoice...the Great Himalayan Trail will be open for business starting next year!  Well, part of it, anyway. The idea behind the Great Himalayan Trail was to be able to hike straight from the western boundary of the mighty mountain chain at Nanga Parbat mountain in Pakistan all the way to Namche Barwa in Tibet.

Hiking the Annapurna Circuit? How to Get Your Nepal Travel Visa

October 21st, 2009
With its rugged terrain and fabulous scenery, Nepal is a backpacker's paradise.  In fact, the country's most popular backpacking route, the Annapurna circuit, was recently named "the world's best trek" by Backpacker Magazine. The Annapurna circuit is a 128 miles long, and it runs along the edge of the Annapurna mountain range, passing through jungles, canyons and finally ascending into the mountains themselves. This is not a lonely, solitary hike-the route is well-stocked with hotels (which serve food but don't necessarily offer lodging), and with lodges (where you can purchase a bed for the night). Every year, more than 40,000  people hike the Annapurna circuit, so unless you are a complete misanthrope, you're guaranteed to make friends along the way.  Plus, you'll get to experi
