HI

I suggest posting on trekkingpartners.com too (if you have not done so already) but, just as on here, watch out for mesages from guides and porters who may pose as trekkers.

HI Scoodly

Thanks for your suggestion, I will definitely do that. Have you trekked ABC before?

HI

You're welcome. I have trekked ABC twice. It's a great short trek with a number of route options including to go to Poon Hill or not. There are lots villages & lodge clusters (those above Chomrong really) so it can be staged flexibly. In brief, I would sleep at Deurali and MBC to have a reasonably safe ascent from an AMS point of view.

This map might help with planning and an overview of the trek:

into-thin-air linked to a better, more up to date one recently...maybe he will link to it again.

HI

OMG thank you so much for the details, it helped me a lot! I am kinda wondering whether I will be able to find someone to trek ABC with when I get in Kathmandu? since I don't want to take company tour. And did you use guide or tour when you trekked ABC?

Hi

I used a guide for the first trek to ABC but not for the second. A guide is not necessary for finding the correct route or arranging for food and places to stay. A good guide can enhance a trek by giving lots of information about the people, culture and the mountains and will make transport, food & accommodation easier. IT's a personal choice, a decision to be made with your trekking buddies, I think.

May/June is not the busiest time of year fro trekking but I think there should be enough people trekking to ABC to find companions. If your posts on her and trekkingpartners do not work then it's still possible to meet people in KTM or Pokhara (most people start the ABC trek from P) and it's easy to meet people on the early parts of the trek to walk with for the day or longer. Trekking is quite sociable and meals are taken at the same time in the lodges so it's usually easy to meet people.

A guidebook might be useful, a general one such as Lonely Planets's Trekking in the Nepal Himalaya which will have a section on ABC as well as general travel information
