Asia » Nepal » Kathmandu » Pashupatinath Temple December 30th 2023

Nepal Tour - Nov-2023 Day-8: Kathmandu: Chandragiri Hills and Pashupatinath Temple Kathmandu is situated in Kathmandu Valley surrounded on all sides by hills. It is like a bowl, and according to one theory, once up on a time, it was a lake. Kathmandu is said to be the oldest, longest inhabited place on earth, continuously populated for last 2000 years. It has an enormous treasure of Hindu and Buddhist cultural and archaeological heritage. Many of these are in damaged condition as this area is highly earthquake-prone, but still, many are in very good condition and many more are wonderfully restored to their old glory, soon after the 2015 earthquake. As per our guide, some of the Buddhist monuments have been omitted from this tour to accommodate for some other sites. We had – - Chandragiri hills ... read more

16. – 25.10. Was soll ich sagen: es war ein Krampf, ein Kampf, ein Pedale gegen den Wind, ein Erstrampeln von gefühlt hunderten Haarnadelkurven, es war kalt und hart und ungemütlich und trotzdem ein unvergessliches Erlebnis, und wir möchten keinen Moment missen! Jeder Tag bot wieder eine neue Facette dieses unbeschreiblichen Tibet: Steppe, Wüste, Felder, Gärten, Hügel, Schneeberge, Seen. Hirten mit ihren Schaf-, Ziegen und Rinderherden. Yaks, Hasen, Ziesel, Antilopen, Wildesel und sogar ein dreibeiniger Wolf! Zeltdörfer, Weiler, Städtchen, von China hingeklotzte Plattenbauten. Das versprochene Basecamp stellt sich als Fake heraus, es ist eher ein Mt. Everest-Aussichtspunkt, rund 8km vor dem Basecamp auf der tibetanischen Seite (das "echte Basecamp" ist jenes auf der nepalesischen Seite). Nichts desto trotz bietet es eine fantastische Aussicht, und dank des prächtigen Wetters verbringe... read more

From the AP: Home to eight of the world’s 14 highest mountains, Nepal has a history of air crashes. According to the Safety Matters Foundation's data, there have been 42 fatal plane crashes in Nepal since 1946. Six-eight died yesterday in the crash of the Yeti Air lfight. The country’s “hostile topography” and “diverse weather patterns” were the major challenges, according to a 2019 safety report from Nepal’s Civil Aviation Authority, also resulting in a “number of accidents” to small aircraft. The report said such accidents happened at airports that had short strips of runway for takeoff and landing and most were due to pilot error. Yesterday's crash is yet another chapter in Nepal's poor track record. Their planes are not allowed to fly into the EU!!! Here are some brief notes I made when we ... read more

It's been a great trip so far, and it absolutely ended with a bang! You know that we have to make the most of our last day, so by 9 AM we had our hotel breakfast and were on our way to the Asan Bazar on newly-rented bikes. The Bazar was full of colorful crafts, textiles, and most importantly souvenirs that we bought to commemorate our trip. After exploring for around 2.5 hours, we got back on our bikes and treated ourselves to lunch at the nearby Nepalya Rooftop Restaurant; and yes, the view was just as incredible as the food! Now, I could wax poetic about the meals we've eaten on this trip for ages, but we don't have time to fall into a food coma today because we have some more exploring to do! ... read more

Hello again everyone! We have gotten some questions about our trip from you guys, so we wanted to have some fun answering those while reflecting on the trip as a whole. What was your favorite part of the trip? Almost every single aspect of the trip was a ton of fun, but the one part that stood out the most when we got to experience the cultures of the places that we visited. It is amazing to be able to connect with people from all the way on the other side of the world, and even though we're thousands of miles apart, we're all still human after all! What was your least favorite part of the trip? Without a doubt, this had to be our two-day-long journey from Dhaka to Kathmandu. Taking the bus was the ... read more
