nepal Himalaya

Nepal has been a magnet for mountaineers, adventurers and travellers ever since its opening to foreigners in the 1950's. It's a country of friendly people, spectacular natural beauty and a fascinating variety of cultures. Popular trekking areas in Nepal are the Annapurna region, north of Pokhara, and the Solu Khumbu (Everest) region in eastern Nepal. In 1998 I spent two months in the country trekking in both areas.

tour info

The Annapurna trek in 1998 was organized by Hauser Exkursionen, Germany, and led by two English-speaking Sherpa guides. In the Solu Khumbu I hired a local guide, Nima Tendi Sherpa.
