We were for 17 days in Nepal and we spend those time very well. Starting from sightseeing for Kathmandu valley to the higher places around Kathmandu to the Jungle in Chitwan right to the border of India to the cozy Nagarkot where sometimes when it gets dark it seems like clouds come into the mountains.
One of the finest experience where also a mix of cultures a and religion. The world has to see to Nepal how to live together like that. And yeah we saw them all: Hindouistic, Buddhistic, Muslim and even Christians in a little house bar with the bed behind. We saw it cause there were pictures of Jezes everywhere.
The biggest moment was to be in Namobudda> We slept in a Buddhistic monastery where we did also 3 prayings and eat zenith the monks.
All this wasn’t possible if there was not the great organization of the whole Himalayan Leaders team> The service was Perfecto and special thank to our Guide Padam with the interesting history and religion lessons on our journey around Nepal. Also, thanks to Vinod for his save rinding and everytime a helpful hand for the luggage.
