The Wonders and Magic of Nepal
If you’re going to visit Nepal yea you can go and do a trek or climb a mountain or go to to see fantastic cultural sites but if you are like me I just go there to chill out and let my spirit glow and stuff. This is our third trip to Nepal and we always go to Kathmandu and Pokhara our favorite places.
I think that there is something for everyone here and I found my something along the way that's for sure, I did do a trekking tour this time and it was a last minute thing but I'm glad I did it cause it opened my eyes to everything and I met some really cool people.
This is not my first rodeo ride as I said I have been to Nepal before I just love it. After the 2015 earthquake things have changed but the country and people are now getting back on track and Nepal is definitely not a place to be missed there is magic in the air.
Nepal is a unique place, a very different world sheltered by the unreal and majestic Himalayas and populated I think by some of the best and most beautiful people on earth, I would hope anyone visiting Nepal would love it just as much as I do.
When you step into the hectic hustle and bustle of Kathmandu you know you’re in another world, the smells, sounds, and sights as you head into town will immediately assault your senses OMG I loved it.
Many visitors come to Nepal for the famous Himalayas and the best trekking on offer in the world, but the countries chaotic capital has its own wonders, I could walk the streets of Kathmandu for days and never tire of the sights.
There you will find the most famous and iconic places to visit on earth and of course, you can't come here without doing some kind of trekking. The trek I did was actually so much better than I had expected, one of the highlights for me was when we landed at Lukla, the most dangerous runway in the world, I have to admit I was a little bit scared and rightly so but seeing a hugh Yeti skull in a monastery at Khumjung just about nearly tipped me over the edge. The people of the mountains and the Sherpas live a simple life and spend their days taking a challenging days hike to Tengboche Monastery and of course climbing the fantastic Mount Everest.
There were a lot of high peaks and tropical valleys when we were sightseeing in Khumjung the wildflowers, birds, puppies, goats, buffalo, and even the yaks were crazy.
Within one day there was nearly every season rain, snow, the sunshine, and mud and I mean lots and lots of mud and not the pleasant kind.
My Sherpa guide was the superstar of this journey, and it would not have been the same without him he had us laughing and made every nook and cranny of the tour a thrill, full of excitement and danger even though there was no danger funny guy!!!!!
This country is amazing especially with what they have been through over the past few years, in fact it has hard to believe how they carry on but they are so happy, friendly and welcoming that a return visit to Nepal is definitely a must.
