Rest Day in Pokara

Much needed after a long hike.

semi-overcast 83 °F

Hi everyone,
We just wanted to say that we are safe and sound after an amazing time in the mountains. Yes Moms, we are OK! Since we are traveling light (one pack between the two of us), we didn't bring the card reader for the camera and will have to wait until we return to Kathmandu to show you all our pics. But we had a wonderful time enjoying the walk from the jungle up to the temperate forests, to the high alpine lakes (the highest in the world actually), and eventually over a pass of 5416 meters. We descended down through the high desert with incredible headwinds (nearly Patagonian strength) back through the forest to the jungle and are now resting in Pokara. Tomorrow we head to southern Nepal to visit the Royal Chitwan National Park for a safari-like experience. We return to Kathmandu on the 1st and can show some pics then.
We miss you all very much,
Jaime and Kym

Canʻt wait to hear more about your trek! Glad you made it back safe and sound. I hope you do the elephant safari to see rhinos and also bathe with the elephants in Chitwan - both are so great!! Enjoy! We are thinking of you!

So happy to hear you are safe and sound. We miss you like crazy, but Mo is right the weather is awful around here. Scott is headed to Sasquatch today and I am sticking around Seattle and trying to get rid of an awful cold. Miss you! xo!
