Trekking in the Annapurna Foothills

NEPAL | Fri, 4 Apr 2014 | By lifeinthefoodlane | Views [83]

CHINA | Thu, 6 Feb 2014 | By kpow | Views [105]

Goodbye Nepal

NEPAL | Sat, 26 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [86]

The flight out of Kathmandu was probably one of the most picturesque I've been on - only comparable to our flight out of Lukla. Thanks to Dad secretly pre-booking the best seats again, I was treated one last time to a wonderful view of the Himalayas, ... Read more >

Altitude: 3700m. We're at our first stop after Namche so I guess there's no turning back. It's only onward towards Everest Base Camp! It's been "PISSING" down like crazy today and I'm fully surprised that I, a true rain-hater, made it here without ... Read more >

Namaste Nepal

NEPAL | Fri, 27 Sep 2013 | By joannawong | Views [68]

We've touched down in Kathmandu! The flight in was amazing thanks to Dad's prebooking of the best seats for a view of the Himalayas. Being snowcapped, they were hard to spot at first but you could definitely see Everest and the rest of the world's youngest ... Read more >
