It is always good to find someone nice when the journey is so hard. Nepalese are known to be among the nicest in terms of hospitality and many more. I really liked that you enjoyed your time in Nepal and met good people.
Nepal is known to hold some of the tallest mountains in the world:
- Mt. Everest (8,850 meters)
- Kangchenjunga (8,586 meters)
- Lhotse (8,516 meters)
- Makalu (8,463 meters)
5th Gokyo Lake (Ngojumpa, Everest, Pumori, Nuptse, and Nuru Ri are in the background)
In fact, there are 8 mountains that are higher than 8,000 meters in Nepal. To the naked eye, the mountains produce enough awe and beauty to satisfy one for a lifetime.
Leah Malsom and I signed up for a 12 day Gokyo Ri and Gokyo lakes trek. We were going to see Gokyo Ri (5, 300 meters) and the tallest lakes in the world: Gokyo lakes. We scaled up staircases of ancient rock and dirt, saw countless yaks walking the trail, and encountered the magnificent mountains Nepal is known for. However, what people rarely talk about is the people of Nepal.
