However, in November 2018 the people of Everest realized that they needn’t put up with this corrupt practice. If they simply came together and started charging room prices just like everywhere else in the world, this practice would just stop. It was as simple as that. And it isn’t exactly expensive either. For Lobuche and Gorakshep the room prices are set at NPR 700 (~USD 6.3) and for lodges below that the price is set at NPR 500 (~USD 4.5). This charge is collected by the Lodge Management Committee and not the lodges to ensure that it isn’t possible for trekking companies to play the lodges against each other anymore.Read More

Well, some people confuse Annapurna Circuit trek with Annapurna Base Camp trek. First of all, these are two entirely different treks. Annapurna Circuit trek is getting more feasible due to the building of motor roads. They are all Nepali style roads- so good luck with that. But if we compare the treks, the Annapurna Circuit is a great experience that you can have in Nepal. It is because you trek from a plain 500/800 meters to 5400 meters and in that altitude change, you see tropical vegetations changing, climate changing, people changing as well as religion changing. The mountains are always there. One probably thinks of Annapurna, or Fishtail while booking a holiday, but eventually, it is the people and culture that one falls in love with. So, Annapurna is a great trail to savor all the spices in one.Read More
