Back in Kathmandu


We’re now back in Kathmandu after our 20-day trek through the Khumbu region.  We’re both in good shape besides a persistent case of the so-called Khumbu cough.  We visited both the Gokyo Valley and Gorak Shep area in the course of our trip, and climbed Gokyo Ri (5,357m/17,575ft) and Kala Patthar (5,545m/18,192ft). 

We’re now indulging ourselves in Kathmandu for a couple of days before heading to Chitwan National Park in the Terai area of Nepal where we’ll be on the lookout for Bengal tigers, one-horn rhinoceroses and various other jungle creatures.  We’ll be back posting about our trekking adventures in the days/weeks to come…
