Part 2: Upper Dolpo Trek - In Peter Matthiessen's Footsteps

Village scene on the Snow Leopard Trek in Upper Dolpo, Nepal.Greetings All,

After spending 3 nights in Shey it was time to leave and continue our trek in the Dolpa District of Nepal. A frenetic Mountain Weasel visited our camp dashing from one empty marmot burrow to another and bouncing off our toilet tent. The Mountain Weasel is listed as near-threatened by the ICUN because it is in significant decline due to habitat and resource loss.

What to expect on a trek to Everest Base Camp in Nepal

Small train of yaks descending from Everest Base CampAfter 28 years of traveling to Nepal there is one thing I have learned very well…people’s expectations and reality can only meet once they land in Kathmandu.

Despite our best attempts to prepare people for their trekking trip, there will always be a sense of uncertainty and unanswered questions. Looking through guide books, blogs and other related articles can not prepare you for the sights, sounds and smells of Nepal.

Himalayan Travel Tips: The Buff - a many use travel must have

The Buff is a must for a Himalayan trekThe Buff: a versatile must for a Himalayan trek

One of the best single pieces of gear you can bring on a trekking trip is The Buff. This versatile product is so popular on a Himalayan trek they even have a Buff with a map of the Everest area in Nepal printed on it. You can use a Buff as a head band, scarf, neck gaiter, balaclava…in fact the company touts 17 different ways to use a Buff on their website (http://www.planetbuff.com/how-to-wear.html). These things wash and dry quickly and easily and have a long useful life. I was first turned on to The Buff by an ex-girlfriend who bought me one for my birthday. I’ve always just used a bandana but the Buff is warm enough to use as a neck gaiter and filters out the dust on the trail when used as a face mask. When its time for it to be washed, I just use it as a wash cloth in river or solar shower.
