Kathmandu - 2019 First impression - Chaotic, crowded and crazy, Kathmandu is Nepal's insane capital. Spent 2 days exploring the city, and in particular its incredible temples.
Hiking & Cooking I am hiking somewhere just outside the city in hills. I made a fire camp near creek and setup to cook pasta for lunch in nature's kitchen. Pasta is overcooked. I like them bit crunchy. This is not a bushcraft video but simple outdoor fun.
I look straight at horizon to a clear view of majestic Mt Dhaulagiri range. Mt Dhaulagiri sat there with red crown on its head - looking at little subjects laden in white snow. There was no obstruction in the path of sight. Slowly intensity of red tint increased and revealing all the parts of mountain range in pure white over the contrast of blue sky.
I made a plan to hike small section of Ghandruk loop trail that starts from Syaulibazar and ends in Kande after Australian camp. Ghandruk loop trek is very short beautiful trail in Nepal on foothills of Annapurna range.
