Coffee is SO important
Loved your comment about doing the stairs in Kings Park and then going for coffee Gill. You have to have your priorities straight!

Happy New Year
Your blogs are always a smiling inspiration Gill. Keep them flowing. I wonder where 2017 will take YOU - you make my now almost annual trips to Nepal seem quite unadventurous by comparison with your world-roaming !

A great second best . . .
As always, aware of, and interested in, the geography, history, culture, and the people: your travel blogs are the next best thing to actually travelling and being there myself ! Thanks Gill.

Steps down from Pura Bukit Gumang

Steps to Pura Gumang
We wanted to go to Pura Gumang. We had our own car, so we only needed to get out at the car park and walk up the steps from there. Except that after 50 steps or so there were no more. Just as a steep slope covered in loose stones. Looked impossible to walk up, you'd have to climb; and extremely dangerous to get down again. So we gave up the idea of going to the temple. Very likely the steps have deteriorated since you were there.

Upper Mustang
I had another read of your trip to the Upper Mustang Region, I enjoyed your report very much. It certainly is a wonderful area. I did the trek in 2012, with much the same route that you. I enjoyed the area so much I have found someone who was interested in going to Upper Mustang. so we are going at the end of March, Heading up to Lo Mathang on the normal route and returning back on the east side through Yara, Luri Gumpa, Tang

Thank you
Hey Gill, thank you for your wonderful blog. I will be travelling in Iran also this month and would like to ask a question: When you arrived at airport, did the Immigration Officers ask you for a name of a contact in Iran and if so, did they telephone them? I will be couch-surfing in Tehran, which, from what I have heard, is illegal. Certainly would not want my hosts to get in trouble. Thank you for your opinion resp. experience at entry. Have a lovely weekend!

Entry to Iran
Hi Claudia, Thanks for your kind words! The airport entry was completely straightforward, I was not asked any questions at all. However, I already had a visa as opposed to a VOA - not sure if that made a difference. Have a fantastic trip- amazing country! Gill

Gillian, what an amazing story, and an amazing trip. I stumbled on your blog post searching for Lombok, but was riveted by your trip to Iran. Not sure I'd be up for the mountain climbing, but it all sounded fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

21st December 2014

Be Arami
It means slowly- I tried to keep a theme happening- bistari is slowly in Nepalese, pelan is slowly in Indonesian. Glad you liked it! Thanks for the comment!
