Group are in Tibet Hotel

 

We left Tibet Guest House in the morning at 8 am.  Wongchu stayed in Kathmandu to negotiate with government.  He will come later and meet us on the way.

Leaving Kathmandu in the early morning - traffic jam, but luckly it did not take long time before we had the first glimpse of some beautiful 7,000 m. peaks in the Langtang area of the Himalaya.

The trip is not for the faint hearted with winding roads and deep valleys.  Our driver Mohan did a super job dodging cows, chickens, goats, people, motorbikes, buses, trucks, everything.  For us it all looks impossible, but, worked out well.

Lunch in Kharidunga

Playing with kids

We stopped in  Kharidhunga and had lunch.  We had beautiful view of Gauri Shanker and familiarized with the local kids.

Camping at Jiri

Finally after 8 hours bouncing around, we reached Jiri.  Sherpas and porters fixed dining tent and camping tents.  At the moment, our cook and kitchen staff are preparing lunch.  Tomorrow, we start trekking.
