Coming to Nepal for Ms. Norell Lee, aged 67 was just one of her customary holidays till she flew to Everest region. After she witnessed the immensity of the Himalayan Kingdom and the divine Everest itself, the visit became, exceptionally, the best part of her life.
Norell Lee came to Nepal on 04 March 2014 for her 9 days heli based holiday. During these days, she explored the best of Nepal, Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan. After the medieval insights at the heritage squares of Kathmandu Valley, she flew to Pokhara for her heli tour to Annapurna Base Camp.
Flying above the Annapurna trail, the enchanting Gurkha settlements, the alpine hills and the panoramic ranges, she got to observe the highlights of one of the most sought after trekking destinations. When she flew to the lowlands of Chitwan, she was just spellbound see the dramatically contrast elevation of the country. And the wildlife tours added extra excitement to her stay. On 19 March, she returned Nepal again for her most anticipated heli tour to Everest, which turned out to be an epic experience!
Nothing in Nepal has singular manifestation. However, within the span of few days, Ms. Norell got the opportunity to experience the multiplicity of Nepal. And effortlessly too!
Nature is even more beautiful when its original color is “Black N White”

Annapurna is the most frequented trekking region in Nepal. During the fascinating trekking adventure, in Annapurna Region the challenges vary with the elevation trekkers prefer to scale and number of days trekkers trek. However, soft adventurous trek to Poonhill, moderate trek to Annapurna Base Camp or the challenging Round Annapurna Trek and Upper Mustang Trek; all of them are very well admired by the trekkers. The trials during the trek in Annapurna region winds through the colorful woods of rhododendron, far-flung mountainous hamlets and attractive mani walls. Average walk of six to seven hours a day, cross passes temples, monasteries, challenging passes and breathtaking landscapes. The floras and faunas of Annapurna Conservation Area Project brings you closer to the rawness in nature while the striking views of world’s highest mountains are frequent rewards throughout the trek in Annapurna region.
