To Trek or Not to Trek in Nepal Again is the Question!

By Mridula Dwivedi January 24, 2013 13 Comments ,

Last May I trekked (stumbled is the more accurate word though) up to the Everest Base Camp in Nepal. And it has been the trek of my lifetime. And Nepal captured my heart completely. So it is not that I do not wish to trek in Nepal again. But this year my teaching schedule is not coinciding with the trekking season in Nepal. Actually it is not so much of teaching but a training program we are going through, it is going on till June.

There is a window in May but if I trek in May it means I have to complete all my work much more in advance. If I push it to June I wonder if the monsoons will set in and I am not much of a monsoon trekker. Also not sure which trek to attempt, Langtang, Annapurna Circuit or Annapurna Base Camp. I think I will take the easiest one this time, EBC was super difficult for me.

The other option is to take it lazy and trek in Spiti or Ladakh again in June/July with much less work pressure.

Still another thought is that I should just book the tickets to Nepal and rest everything will fall in place! Maybe it is time to start talking to the good folks at Above the Himalayas and see what they have to offer.

What do you say? Shall I be lazy or shall I work very hard and finish ahead of schedule and be rewarded by trekking in Nepal again?

  1. it must be so tempting to leave aside everything and rush to Nepal! any of those treks sounds interesting, and honestly, i would love reading about any and all of them, no matter when u go! but booking tickets will certainly help, since there will be an added pressure, and u will surely finish all your work much faster!

  2. You had been to EBC. So at least try little less difficult this time . But please Trek. Nice capture. Thanks for sharing

  3. Ladakh! Simply cause its on my wish list for sometime n i will atleast get to see a virtual tour tour of it via ur pages then 🙂

  4. Now this is a difficult situation you are in..
    I’l recommend you to book the tickets to Nepal and hope everything will fall in place… I know you will have to work hard for it but you will be rewarded well.

    But I also agree with Meenakshi and Maliny – follow your heart.
    I found your page through Indiamike.. you are doing a great job, keep it up!!
    Are you on G+?

  5. Hi Mridula!

    Nice that you went Everest Base Camp Trek Last year and glad to know that you are planning trekking in Nepal this year. Many of tourist, once who visited Nepal like to visit again, and they do it. So, you should do trekking.

    If you do not finish your work, you still can go trek in Nepal in monsoon. In monsoon, Upper Mustang Trek is great option.
