I did the TMB trek last year with GAP. Incredible experience and great group of hikers. Figured I would put my boots in Nepal using GAP... I am booked for the Oct 18th trip, not the 20th. Good luck with your training!

Hey Mars, I'm also booked on the Oct 20th trip together with a friend from Belgium. I'm from Germany. It's my first journey with GAP but my friend is what we call a "recidivist" and he loved his other trips with GAP.
I'm currently doing a high altitude training in a gym with reduced oxygen. Walking on 2500m and relaxing on 3500m now but it will go up to 6500m during my last sessions. Hope this helps a little bit.
Cannot wait to start!

Hi there,

I'm doing the Base Camp Trek starting Oct 25 and coming from Canada through Bangkok. Anyone else departing on that date? Let's connect and share our thoughts.
