HIMALAYA NEPAL: Part 4. Making it and Homebound.

We have come to the final post of Nepal. Although it has been a year since we stepped foot in Nepal, we are still talking about how wonderful it was to experience the beautiful nature made by God. Not everyone is as fortunate as us. We are planning to conquer Annapurna soon. As you all know, we went up Poon Hill at 4am just to witness the beauty of sunrise in between the Himalayas. Just look at what Fadza managed to capture. Breathe in, breathe out. Now go.

Going up in the morning wasn’t easy at all. Lack of sleep due to fever & cold added another barrier to succeed. Nevertheless, once we’ve reached the top of Poon Hill, all the pain disappeared. Like magic. Going down wasn’t as hard as going up (obviously). As soon as we reached Ghorepani we immediately had breakfast, packed, rested our legs for about an hour and started climbing up & down again. This time is to go home.

This was taken at one of the stops on the hill. What you are about to see is the Himalayas from the other side of the world. People went crazy. We did too. Rested our legs for about 10 minutes, had a few sips of water and continued our journey down the hill.

Gandruk Village

After walking for about 4 hours, we finally reached Gandruk village which was our last stop before reaching Nayapul, where we first started. We stayed a night at the Guesthouse facing the beautiful Dhaulagiri. After all the walking, all you basically need is a good hot shower and and and… a comfy clean bed.

I slept right after dinner & Fadza had a date with his camera, Dhaulagiri and the stars that night. He managed to capture beautiful pictures of our last night at the balcony. He plans to have them printed in his book which he is now compiling & we’re hoping to have the books in our hands by 2016.

Our experienced up to Ghorepani was the best for 2014. I couldn’t believe my eyes that I’ve stepped foot there and survived. From reaching Kathmandu, trying their local food, staying at few Guesthouses, meeting a friend, making new friends, climbing up & down

and last but not least, the Himalayas.
