Urban Nepal (Kathmandu, Pokhara) was quite the culture shock. The trek itself was amazing, but be prepared for itinerary changes due to weather/transportation issues.

The trip in the Himalaya was a life experience. A great opportunity to learn about life in Nepal while enjoying incredible scenery and hiking with a great group of enthusiastic explorers. The outstanding trip leader (Bimal) and his excellent team made the experience even more enjoyable.
