In my experience it can help prevent damage to greet Walker: tie something under the producer to avoid unnecessary sharp:

Hi everyone,

After a shower and a some medical care for my cutts I am feeling much better. The picture looks nice Zammi though fortunatly I don't have knee problems.

I won ' t write a lot cause usualy the story isn ' t very well told in writing in my opinion but,

The view from the successful is like this:

We started our trek in Sundarijal, on the outskirts of Kathmandu and entered the Shivapuri National park

The terrain is mostly forest and big hills and terraces.

But you hike about a 800m 1600m up and down that day. And we were fully packed with snow gear so it was not easy.

We got lost a couple of times cause the route is not very clear sometimes and since it is off season you see hardly any tourists along the way. And not all the local settelments are inhabited.

Another crazy thing is that there is no electricity even in Kathmandu for 16 hours a day!

So, when it was getting dark and we still haven ' t reached our destination we turned to the only source of light we saw ... which was a village to 1000 m down a ridge.

But after a few minutes we got it together and pulled our head lamps and compass and navigated our way back and found Chisapani.

Only to find out the it was 50 m above our heads all the time but with no light we couldn't doesn't see it.

Along the way we started to get a glimps of what is awaiting ahead of us:

The most known is the DalBaht meal: Nepali

We are tired and I started to feel a sharp pain in my ankles that turn out to be really bad bruises and cutts.

Next day we walked to Kutumsang and along the way we decided it was not fun any more and decided to get rid of a few we could spare many other things in order to loose weight. We saw a wedding Napali:

By noon we got lost again and decided that because it is an off season and it is getting annoying we will finish the day the decide about the rest.

The route is rough and rugged and with the weight on our backs and my ankles souring growingly we got to Kutumsang and decided to take a sit.

We met a lovely local Sherpa Surki lodge owner, who agreed to be our sit. He is a quiet and shy person with a really good heart.

So, we continued our trek with Surki as a sit and a guide. And man, it was the right call. The following day has a murderous hike up to Mangengoth (1000 m) and then down and then up again for 500 m 500 m and then down for 200m and then up for 400 .... well you got the idea I guess. And the route is usually ok but you can get lost lots of times.

We saw locals and Yaks!

We are now in 3600m Tharepati.

Continuing to Phedi and then to the Laurabbina-4600m Pass

But forget this. You see the Himalayas inexpensive

Our altitude meter when we reached the pass:

Us at the pass with the list flags:

Shiva's Sacred Lakes near the pass:

The Himalays my friends:

Langtang Lirung Langtang 7246m and 6581m II:

And last picture at sunset you can see the right most pick with a bit of snow. This is the Naya Kanga and Ganja La pass we will attempt (and Succeed!) to climb.

I have a lot more but can ' t get it all in one time. Hope it is enough for now. Take care and I'll be online for the next few days went we head back to our trek. In the mean time.

Namaste

Hi,

We didn't suffer "from altitude sickness cause we acclimatize properly.

But walking in these hights is very difficult. We are going to attempt to ascent the Naya Kanga, which is the peak near the la Ganja.

This Himalaya peak is 5846m. So, we added 2 more days to trek and serious ones. Hope it will be worth it.

We are progressively closer a Sherpa guide to this part cause there is no route. And we need a real climbing guide.

I'm glad you liked the pics. I can ' t upload everything cause there is a slow internet connection here. But when I get back.

You should think about on, spending a month here. The our best prices are cheap unbelievebly. And thanks.

Are you implying that I'm cheap?

Just simply ... Sounds great. Tomorrow morning I started working, so I can't see the horizon free month for me to travel. I also have a few days off a year, so I ate it anyway.

To explore the East sounds very appealing.
Also, both views.
Once I asked about it-if the reason we locked on trails in the u.s. and Europe, this wave are so organized and easy logistics.
I personally really lazy and always arrange these things, and that's why I really like Appalachia trail was easy, image-wise.

Ahachhhhhhh he

What can I say, I have a picture, photo, facial pain, like being close to the deep blue color when you look at the top like you pop in deep space.

And the mixed feelings of fear, God, heart pounding, your quiet, frost. Waiting to hear.

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to tell the Veterans down the track.

So I met another guy who wanted to join Israeli and went down the track 6 people.

Michael, Tom and I, our climbing instructor Dundee and porters.

Don't let here too that is difficult to convey experiences like this but,

The porters fled after one day of field and just 4.

Full equipment on my back and move forward.
Then the Trek becomes a completely different challenge. There is a high camp before the pass 5000 meters tall and friends, I have no way to describe the experience of sleeping space in the Himalayas at this height.

Ma, your shcsh function.
And the tarphim as you can see.

The half mile to pass took us 5 hours to do that it's hard.
And we had several NEAR DEATH experiences. I personally started to slip.

A steep slope of 50 meters and after 5 yards somehow managed instinct

To help myself with my ice axe.
And Tom really fell and hung on the line between heaven and Earth right in the pass itself to

The dandy caught him and guide him back up.
Something scary but we got through it.

After the pass was pretty rough days Tom was sick and we had to move.

Serious way without a source of supply or something like that.
Walking in rough terrain and need mental and physical forces, not small.

If we got here I encourage our Sherpa Guide so

That really was hard.

After four days and pretty fast. We got a little underweight malnutrition and shared

The exhaustion is easy to spot.

But I must admit that I personally feel that I was in shape.

Really good for me.
I had no symptoms of altitude sickness that taklmati.
The gym got him to Nepal was enough and felt great all the way.

And although it was a lot harder than I thought it would be really not.

Only survive, but really enjoyed.

Recommend you all to try Nepal I personally back in half

Exactly year (September) and the much longer of

About 3-4 months.


I'd love to share more details if you have any questions or just want to anyone.
Hope that was interesting about the story and the pictures.
(My picture with the axe gang her inspires little fabrics

Among the members. )

In summary, 16 days, 200 km, 4 days of free space settlements, one vendor

Nuts and another technical 5 "light", and a bunch of people Christ

That made my trip very friendly staff.

So far,
Eyal

Wow, what a beauty. Both the movie and the pictures.
Incidentally, you can upload your movie directly to your pikashoov, together with the images.
Anyway, looks amazing. As already said several times before.
