I really love Nepal. I’ve been in country since June 2012, excluding a one month visit to the States in June 2013. I’m a Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) volunteer and also spent time in India for three years. Although I haven’t been able to do much trekking, I’ve traveled for my volunteer assignments, e.g. Surkhet, Siraha. But I’ve also been to Pokhara and Chitwan for fun.
I really love just spending my weekends in Kathmandu, walking around taking photos, especially the walk from Thamel to Teku. Some of my other favorite places include Boudha and what is known as the monkey temple. I find life in this part of the world utterly fascinating and hope to stay for a long time.
My friend Bishnu of Nature Trails is a fantastic person. He is so customer service focused. Try a trek or an outing with him. You won’t be disappointed.
