A thing I'm glad I had

USA | Fri, 18 May 2018 | By debbieprince | Views [414]

From Kathmandu to Pokhora: A poem about the road.

NEPAL | Sat, 26 Nov 2016 | By ginger_droog | Views [538]

The drive from Kathmandu to Pokhora is like nothing I have ever seen. Our jeep clings to the side of the mountain, while Suman gracefully guides the wheel. Dodging between buses and motorcycles, left side of the road to the right. They all have ... Read more >

To Visa or not, that is the question

NEPAL | Fri, 29 Aug 2014 | By ritaj | Views [368]

The last two weeks have been filled with uncertainty as the visa for Tibet, while seemingly approved has not been issued.  In the end I just came to Kathmandu, jumped 'off the cliff' as it were, trusting to the Divine and to Hira when he said it ... Read more >

Day 1. Kathmandu to Shivalaya (via Jiri) by bus. 4/2014

NEPAL | Sat, 31 May 2014 | By timhughes55 | Views [5277] | Comments [1]

On the map the road to Shivalaya winds east and north from Kathmandu approximately 220 km. Look closely and you'll see hairpins and switchbacks, but these gross changes of direction only hint at the true nature of the road. It should also be marked ... Read more >

Cities as Living Organisms

NEPAL | Wed, 2 Apr 2014 | By timhughes55 | Views [578]

I'm sure this isn't original but walking around Kathmandu I am reminded of an old thought: how alike an old city is to a living organism. Lanes and alleyways feed into streets and roads and these into squares and major roads, not unlike the capillaries ... Read more >

NEPAL | Sun, 30 Mar 2014 | By timhughes55 | Views [2822]

Arrived at 11pm at airport at Kathmandu. Was expecting an Indian-like scrummage but pleasantly surprised how low key the taxi touts were. Prepaid taxi to Thamel Rs800 and a bumpy ride to the hotel in the gloomy night. Several hours later, awake, much ... Read more >
