Ladies and gentlemen, now it is for real. Tomorrow we are leaving Kathmandu. 45 minutes by plane and 10 hours by jeep later we should be in Taplejung, where the adventure is finally to begin.
We have confirmed in the mean time that we will be crossing the Makalu high passes at 6200 meters of altitude. I know my brother the doctor and my physio might not agree with this (and I'm sorry!!!) but when the opportunity arose I could not get myself to say no. We will meet our guide and porter at Makalu Base Camp on October 11.
This past week has been, well, the only thing I can think of now is too much. Too much running around chasing permits, people, gear, ATM's. But the details I spare you for the post.
After we confirmed the passes it suddenly doomed on me that we are really, actually doing this. Right now I feel dead scared: my throat is closed, my hands are shaking, I don't know what to do with myself. This happened in New Zealand too, so I was expecting it. Follow us on our blog (link in bio!), on our tracker, on Instagram and Facebook.
The Great Himalaya Trail is to begin. Expect the unexpected. #nepal#visitnepal#greathimalayatrail#kvinnligaäventyrare#turjenterno#turjenter#throughhike#sisugirls#sqoop_no#fjellsport_no#nowifigreatconnection#helsport#devoldofnorway
