Nepal

Nepal is THE country that stole our hearts! We had been toying with the idea of going to Nepal since 2012.  The idea of poor sanitation made us skip it in 2013, the earthquake of 2015 made us skip it in 2016, but 2018 was the year we’d make it to our dream destination. 

Nepal is a magical country which flows within a strange passage of time. We did not go there for luxury, but for experiences and we were blessed with a multitude of heart-warming memories. It is the trip which we planned in all the details and then shattered the plan and went with the flow.  It turned out to be a truly unforgettable journey which we shared with our dearest friend and travel companion, Dorianne.

We would like to share with you, tips on making a memorable journey, stories and photos from our adventures in: Kathmandu and Nagarkot; Chitwan and Sauraha; Annapurna-Dhaulagiri Community Trail and Pokhara; and we'd like you to meet local guides who made our trip one worth shouting about.
