I HAD ALWAYS WANTED TO VISIT NEPAL. GROWING UP I HAD CONJURED UP VISIONS OF HOW I HAD EXPECTED IT TO LOOK; HOW IT WOULD FEEL TO BE THERE. WHY I WAITED SO LONG, I DO NOT KNOW. PERHAPS IT JUST WAS NEVER THE RIGHT TIME. IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT.
MY JOURNEY IN NEPAL COULD HAVE BEEN JUST ANOTHER TRIP. NOW I HAVE COME TO REALISE THAT NO JOURNEY TO NEPAL COULD BE JUST ANOTHER TRIP.
I FLEW TO KATHMANDU THEN TOOK THE INFAMOUS BUS JOURNEY TO JIRI WHERE I BEGAN A SOLO TREK TO EVEREST ALONG THE ORIGINAL PIONEERING ROUTE USED BY EARLY EVEREST EXPLORERS. ALTHOUGH I MET OTHER TRAVELLERS EN ROUTE AND TREKKED SECTIONS OF THE TRAIL WITH THEM, IT WAS A CHALLENGING AND HUMBLING EXPERIENCE TO FIND ONESELF ALONE AMONG THE GIANTS OF THE HIMALAYAS.
IF YOU HAVE THE TIME TO READ THEM I HOPE THE TRAVELOGUES, WHICH BEGIN AT 'EVEREST', WITH A MORE RECENT VISIT UNDER 'ANNAPURNA' PAGE, WILL PROVIDE A SENSE OF ATMOSPHERE THAT CAN BE EXPECTED ON THE TRAILS, OTHERWISE THE TIPS WILL PROVIDE A MORE GENERAL GUIDE.
I HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR VISIT.
