It’s been more than 2 months we are in lockdown. I got the opportunity to visit Bhaktapur this time. Whenever I introduce Bhaktapur, I call it “Living History” as I see the traditional house and still old people wearing a traditional Newari dress.Continue reading »

Day 4, 18th November 2018
Our trek towards Gokyo started from Namche at 8 in the morning. We packed few of our unwanted cloths in a bag and left it at hotel. Looking at Mr. Ajay condition yesterday, we were not sure if he can manage to walk for hours. Still we planned to stay at Dole today which is situated at 4230 meters.

Walking trails from Namche till Kyangjuma was wide enough to walk and nicely paved, thorough the trail we could see the beauty Mount Ama Dablam. It took almost 2 hours to reach Kyangjuma where we had tea and took short break. When returning back I made up my mind that I will stay here to do my night photography.
Day 3 , 17th November 2018.
We planned to stay at Namche for acclimatization to avoid mountain sickness. So, we planned to go around Namche Bazar. After having our breakfast at hotel, we went to museum. It was an informative tour for me as there were lots of things to see. We came to know about the history of Namche, Khunde and Khumjung village and how few people worked to save the environment and develop the Namche . The pictures there showed how the glaciers have changed in last few decades.Continue reading »
Trekking has been like a addiction to me. After doing Annapurna Base camp and Tilicho Lake, I always wanted to do at least one trekking at Khumbu area.
For me, I think I need to dream about it and after sometime the doors to that dream will opens. Same thing happens to me this time. I was planning to go trekking to Langtang area with my friend Akash, but same time I got a call from my friend from India Mr. Ajay that he is taking 2 weeks leave from his flying job and wants to trek with me to Everest base camp.
Akash didn’t want to go this time due to his busy schedule during the time Ajay set for trekking. So me and Ajay were ready to explore the Khumbu area. Since Ajay is not a good walker, I wanted to get some suggestion from my friend who is a guide and do lots of trekking there. So, I planned to meet Mr. Samde Sherpa.
Kotdanda, A place to be once to view mountain range and Kathmandu valley
Kotdanda is a hilltop south of Kathmandu valley. Famous Bisankhunaryan temple resides in this hill. I had been to this place 10 years back.
After visiting this place today, I felt lots of changes there. The first thing I observed is, there is a good road access to reach the place, the old houses were damaged by the earthquake in 2015, so lots of new concrete houses are constructed. Before, I didn’t see any tourism promoting activities, but the night now they have an homestay system so that people can visit the place and spend some time.
Pokhara is the number one tourist destination in Nepal. It has many amazing mesmerizing places to enjoy. Surroundings of Pokhara is also equally beautiful. It has many villages around which gives you close view to Mountains.
Pokhara is also a gateway for Annapurna round circuit trekking and Annapurna base camp trekking. They have added a new destination now, Mardi Himal base camp trekking.
