  • Kathmandu - Round Annapurna Trek 2014 Fall - Daily Dispatches
    other side when he completes his trek in the spring Much of our talk is on the unfolding crisis on the Annapurna circuit and previous tragedies in the Himalaya It s a sobering discussion We also talk about my last three days in Kathmandu It s an easy decision to opt for a short trek instead especially if the days are easy with good views It will be just me and Chhongnuri October 16 Trek 14 km to Chisapani 2165 meters As the warden declared in Cool Hand Luke What we have here is failure to communicate in this case my definition about a short easy trek given the 1000 meter tall staircase that greeted me as we stepped out of the car in Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park I quickly became acquainted with the clever oxymoron Nepali Flats which refers to the steep sections of the trail that join really steep sections first steep then some flats then steep Sometimes it s better not to ask After 5 hours I m parked in our tea house dining hall in the town of Chisapani which itself is parked inside a large cold cloud But it s a fresh clean cloud and that makes all the difference I have cold dal bhat served that I just can t face and buy two Snickers bars instead Three volunteers ask me to join them and we talk about their challenging rewarding experiences in the education and health systems of Kathmandu October 17 Trek 20 km to Nagarkot 1932 meters Last blog entry today We got up before 6 00 am to watch the sunrise from the hotel roof on the ranges to the north Aside from Manaslu I can also see another 8000 meter peak Shishapangma along with the Latang Ganesh and Dorie Lapke

  • Drive to Chitwan National Park - Round Annapurna Trek 2014 Fall - Daily Dispatches
    the cloud veiled jungle At least the rainfall will settle the dust We arrive at Island Jungle Resort smack in the middle of hectic smoggy Bhaktapur but happily it is just for lunch before continuing on to the sister resort by the park After a brief respite in Pokhara I m back in the land of dal bhat I am joined by Kiki and Bas from the Netherlands and a Nepali family and we arrive at our destination mid afternoon To their credit they hustle us out almost immediately for an elephant safari For some silly reason I thought I d be alone on the beast at least for a minute so it felt a bit cheesy when three of us crammed onto a wooden platform behind the driver That feeling ended quickly when we saw our first 2 5 ton rhino lumbering towards us through the forest then I was quite pleased with my little cage high above on a 5 ton elephant The next two hours were a crazy thrilling pursuit of rhinos through the bush across rivers and onto the grasslands While most of the time Kumar our driver deftly steered the elephant with his barefeet behind

  • Pokhara City Tour - Round Annapurna Trek 2014 Fall - Daily Dispatches
    30 minute long final staircase to the top Already it s 30 degrees and humid I congratulate myself on the early morning exercise until I run into a raucous group of Ukranian women who hiked for two hours all the way up from the lake They re on a yoga retreat I mention the large Ukranian population back in Canada and our support for their struggle Ten minutes down the trail I pass a large group of dour Russians Next we re off to the International Mountain Museum Its objective is to maintain records of successful climbs of the fourteen 8000 meter peaks as well as the geographic flora and fauna and human activities in the range The takeaway of human occupation is not a pretty sight but it s a fascinating depiction of the locals peoples and the foreigners who climbed their mountains Food choices are wider here in Pokhara and I had some delicious butter chicken masala and garlic naan bread for lunch Finally it was time for a massage at Seeing Hands a non profit enterprise providing training and jobs for blind people in Nepal as professional massage therapists A disordinate amount of people here are blind

  • Trek 9 km to Jomson (2720 meters)- Round Annapurna Trek 2014 Fall - Daily Dispatches
    peaches spinach carrots This is a hardscrabble existence by a hardy people That might explain their apparent ambivalence to the trash I see on the trails Call me a bourgeouis Westerner but I m constantly confounded by the locals approach to litter particularly plastic packaging At the magnificent new tea house addition I stayed at in Dharapani the clearly astute business owner was taking my order when her pen ran out I offered her mine whereupon she fired hers out the window basically into the backyard As I sat in the restaurant yesterday looking at the stunning scenery a hand casually reached out of the adjacent building and dropped an empty plastic bag down on to the rocks below beside the beautiful creek running through town This doesn t appear to be an urban rural thing nor particular to Nepal Tanzania was similar I m sure I could Google this and find all sorts of fancy Western scientific explanations about emerging societies But clearly for the sake of the planet it should be illegal to use non biodegradable packaging says he buying two containers a day of bottled water Anyway we made very quick work of the morning trek to
