Into the Unknown, My Nepal Journey
March 11, 2015 – April 5, 2015
For many years I have always dreamed of going to Nepal and seeing the mountain ranges that I learnt at school in Australia.
To be amongst these majestic and picturesque country side, experiencing the beautiful culture and learning the way of life of the Nepali people has always inspired me to go.
Living in Australia we don’t have any mountain ranges of significance, so for me going to Nepal with its majestic mountains was the only option.
After many years of life I finally had the opportunity to go at the age of 43.
It was the best holidaying experience of my life.
It was only when I arrived in Kathmandu that I realized that the mountain ranges were not the only things that Nepal should be famous for, but its people as well.
Its only then that I realised the friendliness and hospitality of the Nepali people, and its because of this that I plan on going again.
As we continued our trekking journey through the Khumbu region of Nepal the beauty of the country continued to impress and inspire me.
We stayed in tea houses along the way which was more than comfortable and very accommodating. I met so many people in these tea houses and we swapped stories of our daily trekking activities.
My trekking journey took me to the most beautiful sights of the Himalayas, I saw so many mountains including the famous Mount Everest. What a sight to behold !!!
But to be honest, everything I saw in the Himalayas was amazing. I took so many photos and videos that I ran out of memory !
I cannot begin to express how fortunate I feel to have experienced Nepal. It has made such an impact on me that I am planning on going back in 2016 for another trek and taking my son when he is old enough.
There is so much to see and do, so many people to meet and share experiences and again the Nepali people, they are gods gift to this world; we can all learn something from them.
I am not a writer at all, and it is hard for me to really express my thoughts. But please if you have a chance go to Nepal, it will be the the most enlightening travel experience of your life.
