PaulStripp has indicated that this thread is about Nepal

Hi all,

I'm going to nepal in early feburary 2012 and will be there for a month. (Then on to perth to meet some friends)

Originally I was going to do the base camp everest trek but from what I've read it seems there are other better routes for that time of year?

I was also planning on getting to nepal first then get invoived with trekking groups in the hope to keep the costs down rather than pre booking in England is this wise? Has anyone any experience with this?

Any general tips/advice including trekking routes, sites to see, any lively bars etc would be greatly appreciated. I will be on my own.

Thank you,

Paul

What are the 'other better routes' ? What makes them better for you ? It would be much better / easier if you know what exactly you want. Then people can come up with possible suggestions.
I say this because Nepal offers a large variety of Treks for all seasons.
My suggestion is, for you to come to Kathmandu, see the situation, and then decide. Do not pre-book. (Pre-booking would be necessary only if you plan for the EBC trek - for the round trip to Lukla).
For me, in February, even if you do not do the full trek to the base camp, the hike to Namche or to Tengboche would be very interesting & beautiful.
