harry-prince

A long awaited prediction comes true; His Royal Highness Prince Harry is finally in Nepal, which I can say on behalf of all Nepalese, is a pleasure. Kensington Palace had released a statement earlier this year about the visit without disclosure of dates. He landed in Kathmandu on Saturday, March 19th to mark the bicentenary of the establishment of diplomatic relationship between Nepal and the Great Britain. The prince also stated the visit as his personal tribute to Gurkha soldiers (A Nepalese battalion of British Army) and earthquake survivors. And now he is traveling – he may be doing a Royal visit but his European explorer genes are not going to stay dormant. Read More

Bhutan: travel books to read before you go

Bhutan is a country of mystery. Travelers often struggle to decode the Himalayan Kingdom with a simple walk-in. Its religion, life, simplicity, natural resource and people are intertwined so closely together that a requirement of simultaneous knowledge of each of the factors becomes necessary. Reading books, especially written by previous travelers and locals, proves very useful for those who wish to engulf it all at once. Read More

Leaving Kathmandu Valley

Saturday, Feb 13

They say the Wild West is gone, but that is not so. It can be found in the foothills of the Himalaya, where the last organized settlements of humanity are set into the mountainsides and plateaus.

Travel assessment – Langtang

village

Langtang’s whereabouts, one of the famous trekking routes in Nepal, was still a mystery after the April earthquake wiped out one of its village clusters into dust. Well, not now, as it has just been 5 days I’ve been back from there. Our route was through Syarbu Besi, where we would access the Langtang Valley from the south and trek to the top of Kyanjin Ri overlooking the mountain.

When I was offered a visit to Langtang for its assessment a month ago from Himalayan Glacier, I was pretty excited. Our team included three HGT staff and one foreign national (Connor, U.S.A). In a week’s journey (5 days trek and 2 days bus ride), we discovered something worth sharing to the travel community, and here I am trying to include everything in writing. Read More
