We allowed for a day in 'luxury' ok arrival to Kathmandu (stayed in the Hyatt) before our adventure began! The trip with earthbound expeditions was incredible. There is nothing I repeat nothing like staying in the hills of the Himalayas, in simple cabins, huddled in your sleeping bags and blankets, bed at 8 or 9 pm, simple but lovely lovely food made by the house owner (what id give for more dhal bat, momos and those Nepalese fried breads!). Nothing like knowing how far you've trekked that day and that you've finally arrived in your destination for the day. Nothing like seeing rolling hills 2000metres below, or the sunset over the mighty peaks across the way. Our guide was amazing, Thakur Sapkota. He took care if us like a brother or father, and I never doubted him. Of all the groups (there were three in our 'trip') I was glad he was our guide. Nepal felt safe, fun, wonderful people, cheap and good value, most beautiful scenery. I was definitely shocked at the poverty when arriving, but quickly realised it was safe and you get accustomed to it. I'm so shocked and horrified by the recent earthquakes - life is just not fair for this poor gem of a country. Nepal was rising as a traveller destination - continue one and all I say. I would love to go back and plan to - I never got to chitwan national park! I wish to see her (Nepal) rise up again.
