We are back and missing Nepal desperately! Our trip was wonderful, thanks to your careful planning. We did all that we hoped to, and more. What makes Nepal so special is that is has so many different facets – nature, wildlife, history and culture.

This region offers an endless variety of culture and changing countryside as it proceeds from the hot rive-growing districts through terraced fields, forests of birch, bamboo and rhododendron that eventually turn to stands of fir and hemlock as one climbs higher intro the mountains. Himalayan bear, barking deer and the lesser panda are among the rich animal and bird life that fill the area.Kanchanjunga, Makalu and the spectacular Jannu are among the peaks at the outset of the trek. Passing through villages of Brahmins and Chhetries, you enter almost exclusive Rai territory with a scatter of Gurung and Sherpa settlements.

Day 05 : Mamankhe is a Rai and Limbu village the houses surrounded by barley, millet and cornfields. The local tea-shops have great tongba where you can sip the warm drink with a bamboo straw and chat with English-speaking elderly ex- servicemen.
Day 06 : Yamptudin is probably the only Gurung village this far east. Unlike their Rai or Limbu neighbours, they speak Nepali.
Day 07 : Lamite Bhanjyang does not offer much of a view because of the thick forest of tall trees. Beyond here, there are only herders and shepherds to be seen taking livestock to high pastures.

Day 09 : Ramche at 4,800m is a yak shelter from where it is two-and-half-hours to the base camp for Kangchenjunga south face. Further up there is a broad glacier field at Oktang, a great place to camp if you don’t have altitude symptoms.

On a clear day, you see down to the Indian plains to the south.
Day 12 : Ghunsa, site of a Tibetan Refugee Camp, is four-and-a-half hours down to the valley and you can reach in time for lunch.
Day 13 : Rampuk Kharka. The day starts with a forest trail and slowly gets into moraine country with narrow trails and rock falls.
Day 14 : Lhonak is like reaching Annapurna Sanctuary, but perhaps more spectacular. The north face of Kangchenjunga is visible with its three stacked glacier shelves from which seracs break off from time to time and tumble down in billowing clouds of ice. There are views of Kirat Chuli, Nepal Peak, and The Twins at the head of the valley. The valley itself goes on and on.
