Jan 19, 2014 - Shika - Ghorepani

We woke in the morning to clear skies, thank goodness. Getting down the steps from our room this morning was a dangerous practice as the rain combined with cold on stone steps made it interesting. We had decided last night that if it was raining we would put back on our wet clothes and boots and head back to Tatopani and straight to the hot pools to warm up. If it was dry we would head up to Ghorepani in dry clothes but still wet boots (they warmed put quickly once walking). So onward it was (which I was happy about). The path really took...

Nov 6, 2013 - Poon Hill

We departed Hile on Tuesday 11/5 and had an all day climb up jumbled steps made out of rocks. Overall, our climb gained us about 4600 ft. of altitude by the time we reached our destination of Ghorepani, the home to the much touristed "Poon Hill". We got to town first however and were rewarded with what amounted to the honeymoon suite at the guest house. Private bath, no less! The next morning we got out of the sack (literally) at 0430 to join the multitude of other lemmings streaming to the top of Poon hill to witness the sunrise on the...

Nov 6, 2013 - ABC Trek Day 2 - Tikhedhungha to Ghorepani

12km today with 1225m of net elevation gain. Lakpa had us going at a very easy pace (he kept saying: "bistari, bistari" which means slowly). Including our tea and lunch stops, it took about 7 hours and felt quite easy because of the slow pace. After a hearty breakfast, we started trekking at 7:30am. Much of the day was spent walking up steep stairs and it was a good thing we started early as the sun came out and it was hot and humid by 10:00. The porters are opening up a bit and we had some good laughs today. Annemieke brought a blood...

Oct 31, 2013 - Going Up In The World

Pretty cold last night so slept in sleeping bag with blanket over top. Didn't get much sleep though. Apparently a lot of people find it hard sleeping at the higher altitude. We had an early breakfast & got away on the trek at 8am. Today was up, up & ever up. It was a lot harder today because the trail was mainly up steps, not a path as such and it was steep. It was a real challenge. I found the walking poles that we bought in Pokhara came in really useful If only to lean on to rest & catch my breath. We came across more goats & teams of...

NEPAL - 2013

Sep 28, 2010 - Trekking Ghorepani

Namaste! Estamos de volta em Pokhara depois de 3 dias de montanha, sem telefone nem internet. Este trekking apesar de ser bastante popular, e no entanto espectacular e inesquecivel! Nestes 3 dias, a nossa rotina mudou por compelto. Os nossos dias comecavam em media por volta das 6 da manha e as 8 da noite era tempo de dormir! Estes dias fizeram-me ( Ana ) lembrar os meus tempos de infancia na aldeia dos meus avos... O 1 dia foi bastante duro. O caminho e espectacular, percorre a montanha com cascatas e pequenas aldeias que parece que...

India & Nepal 2010

Apr 24, 2010 - Ghorepani

Breakfast was an interesting mix of toast, potatoes, boiled egg, yogurt, fruit, and muesli. The body seemed to be digesting anything coming its way. We hit the trail by 7 and very soon the ascent began. We trekked along the jeep route for the initial part, after which we began discovering some shortcuts that cut across fields and orchards. After the last few days in hostile, cold, and barren environment, today was totally different. It was warm, bright sun, sub-tropical conditions, green mountains, corn and paddy farms, and lots of...

Mar 25, 2010 - Trek to Ghorepani

Today is my Mom's birthday. Happy Birthday Mom! Today's hike is up, up, up. We start out by going up about 4000 steps. We started hiking about 8:30 a.m., had tea break at Ulleri at 10:00 a.m., lunch at Nayathanti (macaroni & cheese) at 12:30 p.m. The oak & rhododendron forest is beautiful. This trail reminds me of the Inca trail with all the steps, but this is harder. But to give due credit to the Inca trail, I hiked on it for only 4 days. These trails go all over connecting villages, and have guesthouses and lodges everywhere. We arrived...

May 9, 2008 - The start of my trek

I met Brem outside of the travel agency and we got into a taxi that was going to take us to the start of the trek. The journey took about half an hour which surprised me as it did not look very far on the map, but then we did have to go up and down a large hill. When climbing the hill I thought happily that this meant that I would not have to walk up to a similar height, but when we went down again this thought faded rapidly and by the time the taxi driver let us off we were at the bottom of a valley again. We started walking and...
