Wonderful Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal:March 29, 2015
As a first time visitor to Nepal January 14th 2011 to 29th and traveling solo I wasn't sure what to expect when I landed in Katmandu. It didn't take long to realize I was welcome in the chaotic capital. I had been in contact with a company called Gorkha Adventure which took me in and showed me hospitality I had only hoped to realize when I left my home in Alaska. After only two days in Nepal I set off on the Everest Base Camp trek with my guide Amish Lamichhane and my porter Jamba. Little did I know that Amish would become more than a guide and more than a traveling companion? Over the next month he would become a very trusted friend. His interest in my well being and his knowledge of the Himalayas and the people and the villages of the mountains along with his interest in my own world back in Alaska, led to many great conversations during the long chilly days of the January trek. Amish were always upbeat and he was a virtual encyclopedia when it came to information pertinent to the Everest Region. He proved to be equally knowledgeable about the Annapurna Region on a subsequent trek. During my time in Katmandu he helped with everything from sightseeing to acquiring money at the American Express office after I lost my ATM card. Never did I feel as if he was tiring of my company and if I needed time to myself, then I had it. From Para- gliding to visiting temples to Kala Pattar he was the guide and the friend that made my adventure enjoyable.
