Kathmandu – Part 1/2

Did you know that the royal family of Nepal was massacred Romanov style in 2001? There are still many conspiracy theories related to the event and it arguably launched the country into “democracy” after centuries of monarchy. 

Day 11: Chukhung Ri

Our journey continues in the Himalayas. This is our hike on Day 11 up Chukhung Ri which has a gorgeous panoramic view including the north face of Ama Dablam.

Day 9 & 10: Chukhung

When we woke up on Day 9, our mindset had already shifted from strenuous climbing to leisure descending.

Day 6: Cho La Pass

Our toughest day on this trek. It was a bit scary at times. I am thankful to have gone through it safely and get to blog about the experience.

Day 4: Dole to Gokyo Lake

The two days following our resting day in Namche Bazaar, we climbed almost 15 miles and gained over 7,000 ft in elevation. In Day 4, we pushed ourselves further going from Dole to Gokyo in one day.
