Earthquake in Nepal

I was in my bed, sleeping ,because I had 2 more hours before my semester`s final exam which was about to start from 3 pm the day earthquake hit Nepal with 7.8 magnitude. Everyone who survived this earthquake escaped death. I came to know that, when we come face to face with death, our perspective about our lives changes. My bed began to shake and I thought it was probably my dog shaking it. I was very wrong and ran towards safety with my sister and mom. I looked outside the window and saw a…

As we did not pre planned this trip, we could not manage to take enough pictures as our phones battery…

Hom's Home Away From Home Scam

We were having a wonderful day as we walked from Pokhara to Sarangkot up the mountains, surrounded by nature... Then we met Hom.

Hom was sat on the steps obviously waiting for tourists. He sparked up conversation and asked if he could walk along side us as he was heading in the same direction. Later he invited us to his home which we declined. (It was our last day and we couldn't return the generosity).As he continued to insist, a nice Belgium man came offering Hom some money and a… Continue

Are You a 'Good' Tourist or a 'Bad' Tourist?

This is a Tamang Village near Changu Narayan, an ancient temple village. Many tourists start out with a few one-day, warm-up treks before heading out for more challenging adventures. I like to suggest that tourists find a base guest house or host at the edge of the Valley, either on the…

Preparing for my Annapurna trek.....

Having arrived in Kathmandu early March, I spent my first day bringing together whatever I felt necessary for the Annapurna trip.

There were shops all over the city that catered for whatever an avid trekker will need.

After reading Lonely Planet I knew temperatures will most likely go below zero so a warm comfortable sleeping bag was a must and I hired a nice one and purchased two more essentials. A sturdy clear water bottle to refill at official water stations along the route…

A Teacup in a Storm: On Public Spitting and Nepali Belly

By Anand Gurung

I was walking hurriedly in Jawalakhel the other day, my eyes wandering to locate an office where I had a meeting, when my attention was briefly drawn to the Headquarters of British Gurkhas Nepal (BGN). The place looked clean, organised, and seemed to command importance like any other diplomatic missions, offices of bilateral and multi-lateral donor agencies and international NGOs in the cluttered huddle of concrete houses and buildings in the Kathmandu Valley.…
