Thanks Aqua, though I must say it doesn't take a lot of bravery; with a good crew and esp. a great cook I'd go almost anywhere ;)
Fascinating mountain landscape. Great view.
LIKE + FAV.
Very picturesque scenery. Pretty view.
That picture was actually taken from the Sikkimese (Indian) side of Kangchenjuga; the same mountain is as impressive from the Nepali side which I've visited twice but with a crappy camera (and more importantly) as even less experienced photographer - so not worth uploading those pictures ;)
Regards from Switzerland (though I've never seen the Teufelsbrücke ;),
Hmm, usually I trek for 3-4 weeks, but I also did some shorter independent treks like Annapurna Base Camp (a little over a week) or the Everest region (less than three weeks). I think Dolpo took us 3 1/2 weeks since we walked out via Mustang to Jomosom. It can take longer if you're unlucky and they flight into Juphal from Nepalganji gets delayed, some people get stuck there for days... so plan enough reserve days.
In Ringmo you could probably arrange for a homestay, but to get there (and out with via different route) you need tents, food, kitchen etc.). However if you don't go further north you can avoid the expensive Upper Dolpo permit, and Lower Dolpo treks with crew are definitely worth it as well (Ringmo and then into the Do Tarap Valley).
Thanks Debra, wish I'd have more holidays to take pictures ;)
