The Trek Must Go On

Leave a comment

imageimageAfter a whirlwind visit to Kathmandu, capital of Nepal, and an 8 hour bus ride due to one lane traffic to Pokhara, we are at the airport awaiting a flight to Jomsom. A cyclone hit the shores of neighboring India and all flights were cancelled yesterday, but today we may be in luck! For the next 12 days I’ll be headed near the Tibetan border in an area called the Upper Mustang which opened to visitors in the early 1990’s. I’m excited to learn and explore with my wonderful trekking partners, (one from Alberta, Canada and the other from Genoa, Italy) and my helpful guide Bimal. Stay tuned! Update: one hour in & still awaiting the plane from Kathmandu, at least the skies are clearing.
