Everest bass camp April 2019

Hi there .

I’ve booked a tour too EBC next april /May with amigo trekking .

Has anyone used amigo trekking before ?

I’ve never really done anything like this and a bit concern , I’m relatively fit and have done a few half marathon but concerned that I might need to be fitter ?

Also I’ve got a few days spare in Kathmandu before and after the trek . Any recommendations of places to see there or is there anyone else going there on these dates ?

Thanks 👍

Hi Scot

If you can run a half marathon you are definitely fit enough but a bit training with a loaded backpack won't go astray. Kathmandu can keep you busy for quite a while but try to fit in Swayambhunath, Pashupatinath and Boudha. A visit to Patan and Bhaktapur is also highly recommended.

I can not run more than a few steps, but that does not prevent me from going to Nepal for the eleventh time to trek for some 4 weeks. So?

Hi Scot

This article contains a little more information about places to see in KTM:


To add to Eric's suggestions:

Swayambunath: consider going to the nearby Three Buddha Park and if really interested in temple, Ichangunarayan. Kathesimbhu Stupa is a copy of the one at S and is walking distance from Thamel on the way to KTM Durbar square (though the others at Patan and Bhaktapur are better if you are choosing).

Pashupatinath: as a much quieter contrast, Gokarneswor is also a temple complex dedicated to Shiva with cremation ghats. The tow can eb combined with Boudhanath.

Boudhanath: Chabahil a smaller Stupa is worth a quick look to compare with B - like Gokarneswor you are unlikely to see other travellers.

Patan: the small museum in Durbar Square is worth some time as are the nearby Golden Tenple and Mahaboudha. For a full day maybe go to one to the Ashoka Stupas too.

Bhaktapur: a gem. Changu Narayan is a taxi ride away and Thimi is Bhaktapur's contrast - lots of temples in the streets, some traditional buildings and a good place to buy masks and pottery, few visitors.

Good luck.
