A trek to Jomsom and rafting adventure on the Trishuli River was recently organized by Explore Himalaya for a group of eight Israeli visitors. They trekked from Jomsom to Ghorepani, walking through the villages of Tukuche, Marpha, Ghasa, Tatopani & Poon Hill en route. On their return trip to Kathmandu they stopped briefly at Royal Beach Camp on the banks of Trishuli River and had a splash rafting and Kayaking. Here we have some interesting snapshots taken by our trek guide Lama Babu who had travelled with the group.

"Yeah, check out our Dhaka topis!" – With traditional Nepali topis (caps) sitting tall on their heads & generous slices of ..what looks like chocolate cake, the group celebrates the completion of their trek …
We had an excellent and unusually good weather during our Kailash kora, Rongbuk and Lhasa visit.
