Hi Andy, I have been very fortunate, in my life, to be able to travel all over the world and every continent - I must say our Nepal trip ranks right up there with the top five. Just wanted to say thanks for that
Chaz, Thorong La Pass Trek
The most challenging and dramatic way to get acquainted with the grandeur of the Everest region. September 22 to October 12, 2108 confirmed group date!
The Three Passes Lodge Trek connects all the four of the main valleys close to Everest. Leaving Namche Bazaar, the 17,530-foot Renjo La is the first of the high passes and offers jaw-dropping views down to Gokyo Lake with Mount Everest poking its head through the clouds in the distance.
The Ride of My Life: A look back at a 1997 bike ride across Tibet!
“He’s going to kill himself.” This was my thought as our Nepalese bike guide, Shyam Shah, carried his 40 pound mountain bike up the steep stairway leading to Swyambhunath (the Monkey Temple) in Kathmandu for the third time. The first two times? He crashed end over end halfway down the 365 concrete steps. Shyam was a fearless 19 year old and the current mountain bike champion of Nepal. He was known throughout Kathmandu for his ability to ride down anything and he was determined to prove it one more time. Once at the top of the stairway, he gave a thumbs-up and proceeded to race down, bike bouncing up and down seemingly uncontrollably with his hands nowhere near the brakes. A crowd had gathered at this point as Shyam landed safely at the bottom to where I was standing wearing a huge smile. “Ready for Tibet?”, I asked. “Yes Andy”, he replied.
Thinking of finally going on your first trekking trip? Here is some food for thought!
Being able to boast about completing a trek in the shadow of the world’s tallest mountains is enough motivation for any avid hiker. You don’t need to be an experienced hiker or seasoned world traveler. If you are in good shape, love to walk, have an open mind to different cultures and sense of adventure, you can make this dream a reality!
A lodge trek in Nepal can cater to your gluten-free diet.
Recent research suggests that 10% to 15% of the population suffers from some form of intolerance to gluten and its many symptoms. Switching to a gluten-free diet can initially prove frustrating but, with some creativity and the increase of the number of gluten-free foods now available, you can enjoy a healthy and balanced diet.
The 'New Annapurna Trekking Trail' (NATT) has given new life to one of the world's great mountain hikes
The Annapurna Circuit is one of the true classic, long distance walks in the Himalayas. Since it first opened to the outside world in the late 1970’s, thousands of trekkers and pilgrims have traveled the 136.5 miles of pure Nepalese beauty.
“Trekking” originates from the Afrikaans word “trek”, meaning "travel". The noun was assimilated into the English vocabulary in the middle of the nineteenth century and meant to represent a journey, made usually on foot, through a rural area. These journeys are known to be long trips in different regions of the world, using the trek as a way to reach one place or another.
The high passes of Lower Dolpo: Numa La (17,000ft/5,200m) & Baga La (16,600ft/5,070m).
Heading out of Dho Tarap Village you pass some outlying villages and a monastery on the way to Numa La Base Camp (14500ft/4,440m). As a sea level person, once you get over ~ 12K feet, you really start to feel the thin air even with good acclimatization.

Happy trekkers at Everest Base Camp (Oct. 2017) while on the Everest Base Camp 'Almost' Luxury Lodge Trek
We are flying home from Istanbul today. More next week but I wanted to let you know we had an amazing time.
The Chomolhari & Bonte La Pass Trek. Another great time in Bhutan!
Thank you for your card, which we received yesterday. Our trip went flawlessly. Everything you had set up in the itinerary, from big to small, happened exactly as planned with zero hitches. Sonam Phuntso was an outstanding guide, who executed everything perfectly, went out of his way to ensure that no problems occurred and/or quickly found solutions and handily accommodated our desires - beyond the call of duty. The team assembled for the trek itself could not have done their jobs with any more skill and kindness.
