Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.
Summary

In April 2018 I am going on a trekking trip to Nepal the Langtang Trek.  I was in Nepal in 2015, but my trip was cut short.  On April 23, 2015, we left the Everest Base Camp, just two days before the earthquake, and on April 25 we were about 2 hours to Namche Bazar when the ground started to shake.  The rest of the season was closed. 

If you are interested to go on that trip, please contact me shortly, because I need to start making reservations soon.

The price for the track is $1,300, not including the airfare. You are responsible to arrange your own transportation to and from Kathmandu in Nepal.
