Lukla. Be sure to jostle for the best seat
for the view of the Himalayas as you y
west to Pokhara for the Annapurna's, or
east for Everest.
So let's get back to this trek idea. Are
you really being expected to walk all the
way? Yes, up and down hills, across rivers
on suspension bridges, across steams
below beautiful waterfalls climbing
innumerable steps up and steps down.
Steps - so many steps built into the
path by hand over many centuries,
maintained as we would maintain our
roads, used by tens of thousands of feet;
the feet of trekkers like us, and the men
and women who live and work in the
villages we are to visit.
Each trekking day is measured to
allow for all to complete the trip within
the available daylight. is means that
you can rush, be super t, have great
lungs, have no altitude problems and
get to the next village before lunch
time. Or you can take a slower leisurely
pace, stop to rest, drink some more
water, look again at the mountains and
the streams and slowly, slowly climb
or descend, taking in the majesty of all
that surrounds you, letting the magical
landscape sweep you along. You will
trek along paths through rhododendron
forest, alongside terraced rice paddies
and past soaring pines.
At night, entertainment is mostly up
to you and your fellow trekkers. Cards,
name games; all of the games that used
to happen in homes before electronics
came to the fore... With a full belly, a
little local spirit and a long walk behind
you, bed is usually not far into the night.
