While planning a business trip to India my buddy, Christian Wylde, and I discovered that flights from Hyderabad to Kathmandu were very cheap. Thinking quickly we planned a trip to Nepal and contacted Jim Harlan at Uncommon Adventures to arrange for a guide and some on the ground transport.
The experience was magical! We spent some time seeing the various sections of Kathmandu stretching back centuries and combining multiple peoples and multiple empires ages ago. We were able to go deep into the local life and were warmly welcomed especially by the children. It was an amazing education on a slide of the world we had never seen.
We also wanted to see the worlds tallest peaks. Jim arranged for us to fly to Pokhara to get a taste of these beautiful mountains on my birthday!
