Kicking Back in Kathmandu

Wednesday, 3 Apr 2013 | Views [469]

Back in Kathmandu again after the spectacular and scary flight from Lukla, however, I can’t really tell you much about Kathmandu as we didn’t venture very far but I’m sure if you look in our worldnomads archives you’ll find our ... Read more >

Gokyo Ri Trek

Monday, 1 Apr 2013 | Views [3364]

Lobuche 4910m > Shomare 4010m > Upper Pangboche 4000m We awoke in such painfully cold conditions that we didn’t hang around.  I was feeling rotten again but in a different way – I thought I’d had an allergic reaction to ... Read more >

Everest Base Camp Trek

Friday, 22 Mar 2013 | Views [2041]

Kathmandu 1400m > flight to Lukla 2840m > Phakding 2610m > Monjo 2835m We weren’t entirely convinced this trek would ever happen as the agency we used in Kathmandu didn’t fill us with confidence.  The lady in Metro Everest ... Read more >

Pokhara to Kathmandu

Saturday, 16 Mar 2013 | Views [566]

The tourist bus station in Pokhara has a beautiful mountain backdrop and this nicely set the tone for the scenery along the way; paddy fields and banana palms leading up to 7000m peaks.  The journey was smooth and enjoyable until we were within ... Read more >

ABC ........... Easy as 123?

Wednesday, 13 Mar 2013 | Views [1397]

Following a few months of very little exercise and 3 weeks socialising in England would ABC be as easy as; 1, 2, 3, doe, ray, me, as the song goes?  Mind you, I’ve a sneaking suspicion that The Jackson Five weren’t singing about the ... Read more >

Picture Perfect Pokhara

Wednesday, 6 Mar 2013 | Views [524]

We relaxed in Mr B’s lovely garden in Bardia until it was time to jump in his jeep and rattle along the track to the main road. Seats had been booked for us and the 14hr journey to Pokhara cost Rs1000 (about $12 now that we’ve moved on to ... Read more >

Beauty and the Beastless in Bardia

Sunday, 3 Mar 2013 | Views [491]

Mr B’s is quite a basic place but the rooms are spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. They’re set around lovely gardens that attract a whole host of birds and the entire area is very peaceful. The food we had was very tasty but we feel ... Read more >

A Long, Long Journey to Nepal

Friday, 1 Mar 2013 | Views [705]

We started the day with another civilised, relaxed breakfast in the garden of Hotel Fairhaven before embarking on our day’s travel.  First of all we employed shanks pony to get us to the cycle rickshaw stand at our end of the lake.  For ... Read more >

Around the Kathmadu Valley and Chitwan National Park

Wednesday, 7 Jan 2009 | Views [1389]

Following a reasonably lazy morning we decided to walk to Swayambhunath (Monkey Temple) which is on the outskirts of the city.   We had hoped it would be a pleasant stroll but should have known better since we were back in the noise, chaos and pollution.... Read more >

Trekking on the Helambu Trail

Helambu Trek – Day 1. Kathmandu (1300m) – Melamchi Bazar (870m) – Duwachauri (1500m)  : Walking time 2hrs 45mins. We were so eager to set off on our trek that we were up and at’em before the restaurant had opened!   There was no way Steve ... Read more >

A Good Do in Kathmandu

Monday, 5 Jan 2009 | Views [824]

Had to get up at 3am to get to the airport but somehow getting up before the sun is always easier when you know the next adventure is about to begin.   The airport at that ludicrously early hour was off course very empty – except for our check-in desk.... Read more >
