Great Himalaya Trail - Nepal

Postby Buckeye-Annie » Mon Feb 20, 2012 1:57 pm

A few weeks ago the Sunday Denver Post had a huge article about GHT as a new "bucket list" adventure. I learned of this route about a year ago, and now here I am in the Doha Airport on my way to Kathmandu!

If you care to know more, or follow progress, I'll be posting blogs and location updates on Google Earth map via Iridium satellite phone+iPad2 connection on my website. http://www.annieuphigh.com

I head east from KTM in a couple of days, fly toward eastern border hike to Kanchenjunga base camp, and eventually end up west border late July. 1056 miles. Sherpani Col at 20,000' is highest we'll go.

(I'm so freakin' excited!)

This is really cool. I look forwarding to following you on your website. Enjoy Nepal. It is beautiful.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat."

Thanks! I'm thinking book when I'm done, I am sooo hemorrhaging money right now, but ask me if I care. The adventure just seemed to take on a life of its own. It's a new concept (traverse) and I'm almost certain I'll be the first US woman to do this.

After me and Kathy (and about 10 others) did the trek to basecamp a couple years ago, we love everything Nepal. You can count on two book sales here! :D

\:D/ for books

Me, too, except I do not like the wait in visa line and the kamikazee drive to hotel, but I am here, alive, and with both bags--YES!
