Sherpa Everest

The Sherpa Everest trip that I was on was just excellent. The Aussies , the leaders, cook, sherpas and porters were the best. I just wish we could have had one more beautiful day in Namche so we could have gone to the Everest Hotel. One of the days we walked through 7-8 inches of snow and unfortunately we did not see the mountains. That was a day to remember. The next day it was unbelievably clear in Namche but we had to start our return towards Lukla. All in all, it was great trip.

I was amazed how well I did on the Sherpa Everest trip and I believe the Aussies and the leader were amazed too. I believe it was the way the sherpas lead us up the hills. A nice slow and steady pace along with staying in Namche for two days. Keep up the good work.

South Korea by Bike

Situated on the Han River, Seoul is the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea, and the starting point for our tour. In Seoul, bicycle paths are available on both sides of the river and we leave the city on excellent new cycle paths as the Han river leads us into a tranquil rural countryside. Seventy percent of South Korea is covered in natural forest and as the cycle paths follow the rivers the terrain is mostly easy. Restaurants and cafes are located on these paths and you will meet many local cyclists who have embraced Korea's new cycling culture. Each day we will take in different sights, visit cultural icons, stay in a great variety of accommodation and taste a delicious variety of Korean cuisine. On our return to Seoul, which is ringed by mountains, if time allows, we will have the option to hike Mount Inwang, one of Korea's most sacred mountains.
