The Magic of the EBC Trail

Well I will have to say my first experience in Nepal caught me by surprise! In anticipation for the trip all I wanted was not to get altitude sickness and that I end up with a good tour group.

Fast forward 3 weeks and I can honestly say that for the first time in many years I woke up!
The incredible scenery, the amazing culture, the most hospitable people all had left me with a feeling this place has a kind of ‘magic’ about it!

I couldn’t have asked for a funkier bunch of guys in my trekking group than Steve and Pasha! We shared so many great experiences and plenty of frivolity along the way. It was the running joke, “A Canadian, a Ukrainian and an Aussie walk into the bar!”…well in fact it was our tour group! (we did however find a bar or two to walk into on our travels??)
We also met so many people from so many different parts of the world along the way. Everyone had such fascinating stories to tell.

But the most important factor in making this experience so memorable was HGT. They made everything run so smoothly and nothing was ever a problem. In fact if there was some kind of problem they went out of their way to make sure it didn’t affect your experience and got things sorted out immediately.

I cannot speak highly enough of Bam Mangar our tour guide. Bam quite simply was the ultimate professional. He committed 100% towards you and made sure you were always looked after. Bam was highly experienced and knowledgeable with the history and culture of the EBC trail. Bam was also the butt of many of our jokes and gave as good back to us!

As for altitude sickness, due to the well planned itinerary and the wise eye of Bam, we all managed to achieve our ultimate dream and get to EBC without any major hiccups.

I have traveled to many parts of the world and met so many amazing people and I would have to say my trek to Everest Base Camp and all that went with the tour would have to rate as one of the best experiences of my life!

I can’t wait to return to Nepal one day and will certainly be looking up HGT to organize my next Nepalese experience!

Nepal: The Perfect Place to Fly Like a Bird

Nepal is home to some of the world’s most magnificent and breath taking scenery, being home to the largest mountain range on the planet – the Himalayas. Many take to the mountains for climbing expeditions, experiencing the rugged and treacherous high altitude conditions first-hand. Many just like to take in the pure marvel of the world’s largest rock formation by viewing them from the cities below.

However, one way to truly experience the beauty of the Himalayan Mountains is by air. The Nepalese region of Pokhara has an amazing secret; it is home to some of the world’s best paragliding schools and hosts what can arguably be considered as the most desirable paragliding location imaginable.

Woman Trekking Guide Leads The Way in Nepal

Started Ten Years Ago

A decade ago in when Saraswati Biswakarma first began plying her trade as a trekking guide she was met with some considerable resistance from her male counterparts. They would quite often remind her that she was taking a job which was considered male only territory. The 28-year-old guide explains, ”’You’ve snatched our job’, they would shout when I walked up the mountains with over 10kg on my back.”

One of the few Females to Climb Annapurna IV

In a profession which has always been the domain of Nepalese men, Biswakarma is one of the first females to undertake this kind of work – and she remains one of the few women in Nepal who have been able to take up work as a trekking guide. As part of this process she has had to face some very stern physical tests and to date she is one of just a handful of women to have climbed Annapurna IV. This ascent is considered by most to be one of the hardest challenges in Nepal.

The decision has been taken considering the popularity of Nepal as a unique and one of the best tourist destinations in the world. Hundreds of travel agencies of 79 different countries are member of UFTA, which operates as the umbrella organization of international travel agents.

The summit will be participated by over 200 international travel agents and will be held in coordination with Nepal Association of Tour and Travel Agents (NATTA). Nepal is all prepared to host the summit with elaborate programs and festivals.

World Tourism Day observed

Nepal has observed the world tourism day with plantation and by welcoming the tourists at airports and border points. This year the theme of World Tourism Day has been to wedge a campaign on the development of environmentally sound travel business.

Nepal has set up ‘Climate Neutral Fund’ in order to tackle the challenges of climate change with the help of tourism. Global warming has today become the hottest topic in the world with such problems as air, land and water pollution and rapid melting of glaciers, flooding and drought.

Nepal Tourism Board has brought a special program to invite tourists visiting Nepal to take part in plantation program in coordination with local communities. It has been felt necessary by concerned tourism stakeholders to raise awareness about environmental conservation among tourists.
