Nepal, a destination for high – altitude trekking Of the many attractions in Nepal, trekking in Langtang, just north of Kathmandu, provides an unsullied vista of the magnificent Himalaya mountains – without scaling Everest.
By Ethan Casey
Nepal is famous for its magnificent mountains and rugged high altitude trekking. For the best weather and views, go right about now (late September to December) or between February and May. But for an unforgettable vacation far form the madding crowd, Nepal also offers much, much more.
This writer and a Thai friend were in Nepal in June and July, during the rainy season when tourists are few. It was very pleasant to have the whole country “to ourselves”, so to speak, thought the rain made it impossible for us to trek, The capital, Kathmandu, is a charming and interesting small city and breath of fresh air to anyone arriving form Bangkok. The city is set in a large valley surrounded by the foothills of the Himalayas; attractions nearby include the Swayambhunath stupa, the Hindu temples at Pashupatinath, and the quaint town of Bhaktapur, where you can walk for hours without seeing an automobile. At Royal Chitwan National Park on the Terai plain, you can ride on elephant, take an escorted hike in search of wild rihinos and other exotic beasts, and visit and elephant breeding farm.
Just outside the valley is Nagarkot, the spot nearest Kathmandu where the highest snow-clad Himalayas are visible. We din’t make it to Nagarkot, but all reports say a nights there – and a very early morning to see the breathtaking sunrise – are well worth it.
While it is extremely unlikely you will be robbed or cheated in Nepal – the people are wonderfully friendly and generally very honest- some tourist have experienced in convenience because of bureaucracy or inefficiency. We had a frustrating encounter with officialdom at the airport. My Thai friend had obtained a visa at the Nepalese Embassy here in Bangkok – which we later learned is not necessary through no fault of her own my friend’s visa was stamped too soon (It’s a long story). We tried and tried to explain that immigration officials had made a mistake, but the immigration department insisted she pay another US40 for new visa. Royal Nepal Airlines also was at fault; they were not willing to give my friend a rebate on her fare, though they did upgrade us both to Shangrila – Classs, the airlines’s highest class, for our flight back to Bangkok.
An excellent firm to contact for arrangements once you are in Kathmandu is Hard Rock Treks & Expedition of Thamel look for the sign around the corner from Potala Guest House Mr. Bharat, “OM” Shahi, proprietor of Hard Rock Treks, is a member of the Association for Tourism a private civic group dedicated to making your life as a visitor to Nepal as pleasant and hassle free as possible.
Our purpose is that when the tourists come, if they have problems in Nepal, we will help them “he says”
Mr. Shahi says the group’s purpose is to make sure tourist will not be hassled or cheated, so they will enjoy their stay and want to return. The groups self assigned duties include giving correct information about Hotels and Other Services keeping the airport clean, and controlling soliciting at the airport “ If you are in trouble we can help you” Says Mr. Shahi. The group also participates in civic events such as national Day, Non- Smoking Day and Labour Day, and promotes reforestation and security in tourist areas. Fees paid by members finance it. A representative of the Association for Tourism is on hand in the airport arrival hall to greet every incoming flight, wearing on ID card a white shirt, blue pants and a black tie.
Mr Shahi provides excellent, well-informed advice about trekking and other activities. He strongly recommends the relatively unsullied Langtang Trek north of Kathmandu.
“Langtnag is very nice area” he says, adding “And the people are nice and more friendly then on the other Trek”. And you don’t have to climb as steeply as you do on Annapurna or Everest.
