During the Nepal tour from February 18 to March 10, 2012 Mr. Flemming, Ms. Johanneson Connie and Ms. Koch Henriette from Denmark not only trekked to the grand Himalayan sites of the Everest region, they also enjoyed 3 and half free days at Kathmandu to rejoice their huge achievement of successfully making to the Everest Base Camp and the several celebrated sites of the region.
The Danish visitors through our exclusive country partner Kipling Travel also had a concise sightseeing tour of Kathmandu city before their departure to their trekking expedition to the Everest Base Camp. The cultural tour of Kathmandu city refers to come across the numerous shrines and monuments almost at every corner of the city. Kathmandu is a heritage city, where in the good old days number of temples and monasteries equalled the number of houses in the city and the deities within them equalled the number of people in the city.
The trek began at Lukla on February 20. Their trek covered most of the eminent sites of the Everest region. The Sherpa capital Namche, home of Hillary Hospital Khumjung, sacred Gompa at Pangboche,Ama Dablam Base Camp, excellent view-point for Everest and other Himalayan giants; Gorakshep, the highest altitude cabinet meeting point; Kalapattar and the base of mighty Everest the Everest Base Camp.
After the two weeks long time spent at Himalayas which was very well planned for abundant acclimatization and exploration, the Danish visitors had the worthy memories captured in their cameras and brains. They were enjoying their free days at Thamel Kathmandu however, the beauties along the trial during the trek to Everest Base Camp was still in their eyes.
They finally made the exodus back home on March 10,2012 with loads of the most beautiful experiences and spell-bounding encounters in this Himalayan nation.
Dolpo requires some extra logsistics and Pemba made all necessary arrangements. We also benefited. Both treks were wonderful! from having a local guide- Baba –in Mustang- as this is more of a cultural trek-his personal knowledge was useful.
