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.
How difficult is the ABC trek? The trail in ABC trek is roller coaster. Steep ups and Steep downs. It is strenuous to legs. If you have acute knee pains then you will have to take it slow and steady. Don’t put a target on yourself to reach certain destination. Hike with your comfortable pace. For average legs it’s a good exercise to calf, thighs and glutes.
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.
