Hello from Barry, of the Annapurnna group,
This is our 2nd full day in Kathmandu. We were pleased to see a welcome sign outside the Hotel Holy Himalaya. The hotel was a welcome rest after a 3 day trip from the cooling weather in Albert, Canada.
We have met our Sherpa guides with the assistance of Passang Sherpa. Our itinerary was rehearsed and it promises to be a great trek. Today was the cultural tour of 3 places around the city. We were fortunate to have Origin as our cultural guide and visited the Monkey Temple – mix of Hindu and Buddhist, The Hindu cremation sites with the Pashupati temple in the background and finally the partially earthquake damaged giant Boudha. So far all has been enjoyable and look forward to the Trek!
