    Hey! Great blog. Just curious where you got internet to update this everyday. I will be traveling to Nepal for 4 weeks with four other classmates in July and August. We’ll be in Kathmandu, Lukla, Namchhe, Doboche to Dingbuchhe, and will be trekking to Everest Base Camp. We wanted to do something like this but didn’t think the internet access would be available. How did you manage?

      Hi Justin, that sounds like a fantastic trek! So far we’ve been able to get wi-fi access in almost every town to access the internet using our own devices. I can only speak for Kathmandu and Namche from your list (which both had readily available wi-fi) but I would assume you could find wi-fi in each of the other towns you mentioned besides Everest Base Camp. Supposedly many of these towns also have internet cafes if you don’t have your own devices, but I can’t speak for those since we haven’t used them yet.

      We also have a USB dongle with a sim card to connect to the Ncell 3G network when we get to Lobuche and Everest Base Camp. Data is relatively cheap but it is a hassle to get a sim card here so build in extra time if you want to go that route.
