Trekking Sites

Many trekking companies are now on the web. Sites contain information on what to take, where to go, detailed itineriaries, and lots of good photographs.

The Himalayan Explorers Club, a nonprofit organization, is now available for people traveling to (or with an interest in) the Himalayas. The Web pages now include an indexed search of relevant Himalayan Newsgroup postings over the past year. The Club also offers a number of services, including:

  1. A Kathmandu Clubhouse where members can send or receive mail, phone calls, and e-mail, store luggage, and meet other travelers.
  2. A home-stay program, where visitors to Nepal can stay with families in Kathmandu.
  3. A quarterly newsletter, Himalayan News, with articles on culture, travel, and nonprofit work being conducted in the Himalayan region.
  4. Discounts on books, maps, and handicrafts from the region.
  5. Growing databases of trip reports and travel advice collected from members, press articles, and internet searches.
