We are constantly torn between the mountains and the sea. This blog is an account of our sailing adventures, both in British Columbia and Mexico (2013-2015 trip to Mexico's Sea of Cortez), as well as our mountain adventures (including skiing in the Winter, hiking in the Summer/Fall, and trekking in Nepal). Hopefully this blog will provide you with helpful information on these topics (in addition to documenting our adventures). Welcome!
In Kathmandu... back for another trek (Manaslu circuit)
Nepal draws us back... again.
Good flights to Bangkok, with a couple nights there to work on jetlag, and then on to Kathmandu. Been here now nearly 3 nights, and we're ready to get out of town (still smoggy and crazy, and filled with wide-eyed tourists).
Tomorrow we head out for the day-long drive to the trailhead for the Manaslu circuit (currently at Soti Khola). Manaslu is a "restricted area", which means we are required to hire a guide. (That's OK by us, as we wanted "help" this time carrying our stuff. So a porter and a guide.) It will also be less crowded than Annapurna or Everest treks.
David did the Manaslu circuit trek way back in 1993. A full-on camping only trek (no lodges back them) for 21 days. This time, no camping, and we expect to be trekking for 18-19 days.
Fingers crossed all goes well. (We ain't getting any younger!)
