  • Day20

    😭 nepal and Himalaya Trekking is coming to an end.. although the last days were not as exciting as our way to thorong la pass we still were amazed about the last part around ghorepani. Especially our first sunrise we saw from poon hill was beautiful. Unfortunately we were not the only one.. if someone is doing the same: better start hiking to poon hill earlier than 4.45am otherwise you will stick in tourist jam 😌
    Trekking around ghorepani means more tourists as well as more stairs! Because the region is quite hilly but with many little villages there are really a lot of stairs. In combination with the rain forest character of that region it makes it kind of mystic.. like finding a hidden treasure.
    Our really last days we spend in pokhara, the second biggest city in nepal and main starting point for diverse adventure activities. The city is obviously more touristic with many international restaurants. But compared to kathmandu not as crowdy and dusty..
    Although we had a pretty decent shower since weeks we were kind of melancholic not to be surrounded by the beautiful giants anymore. In our minds we still were trying to conquer the little brother mountains and enjoying the wonderful views.. definitely not the last time! See you again Nepal! Namaste

    visited the Living Goddess, 7 yr old, in a Buddhist temple unlike other temples. All girls are considered Kumaris but one is chosen by astrology chart to spend 8 years inside the temple, never to go outside until her first menses when she is sent home and a new one is chosen. We met a young woman who had been one 20 years ago cand is now married and written a book about her life.
    Many of the 17th century wooden and brick buildings were destroyed in the 2015 earthquake, which tjey are now rebuilding. This is called Durbar Square. Patan was founded in 250ADRead more

  • Day159

    We flew into Kathmandu the night before Whitney's birthday. We spent her birthday acquainting ourselves with the dusty city and prepping for our upcoming 14 day trek through the Himalayan mountains. We drank Everest beer and dined on momos (Nepalese dumplings), a rangi changi (colourful) salad, as well as a chocolate soufflé. For a birthday present, Whitney treated herself to a new pair of Solomon hiking boots and we rented a backpack, sleeping bag, superwarm puffer jackets, beanies, hiking socks, and hiking poles. Decked out with our new kit, we are itching to get into the mountains. Here we go!

    P.S. we are giants here.. at least a head taller than everyone.
