Walking Kathmandu, Nepal-Travel Chat And Advice

I’ve been visiting Nepal for the past 8 years, this was my 7th visit. Obviously by the number of visits it’s not hard to tell I’m in love with this country. The trekking posibilites amidst the highest mountains on the planet. Unique culture and incredibly fascinating cities and sites. Some of the best wildlife viewing on the planet. 

I was in Nepal on this visit to lead a small group to Annapurna Base Camp. An interesting and fantastic hike  for first time trekkers. This was the first time I was in view of the high Himalaya within 3 days. Usually, of course depending on the trail it can take a minimum of 5 days with proper accilimitization to reach the altitiude that’s necessary to view these giant peaks. If you have any questions about trekking in Nepal please feel free to send me an email. I’m leading a small group up to Everest Base Camp September 15th, it would be great if you could join us!

Kathmandu does take getting used to for many unfamiliar with South Asia. The traffic, chaos, dirt, Kathmandu is a very dusty city, and the curious who will stop at nothing to sell you something. It’s still I believe one of the last few cities in Asia that has still not been transformed into a global village with Starbucks, Gap, Uniqlo, McDonalds, and other chains that are pretty much seen in every medium to large city now in Asia. If you want to escape globalization, mass marketing, the come to Nepal! Hope you enjoy the broadcast. Love to get your feedback! Safe travels and Namaste!
