EVEREST BASECAMP: DAY 0 – Kathmandu

After summiting Mt Kilimanjaro last year,  I told myself I was done with adventures at altitude. So because my convictions are so strong, less than a year later, I find myself embarking on my journey to try and get to Everest Basecamp 😉

All journeys start at Kathmandu. I arrive late in the evening so by the time I get in, Kathmandu night life is in full swing, despite it being a Sunday night. I’m staying at the Kathmandu Guest House, an institution in its own right, located in the Thamel district.

There’s live music a-plenty and the bar next to my hotel has a cover band doing the Kings of Leon’s “Sex On Fire” which makes me giggle.

I’ve decided that my first meal in Nepal will be momos. These are a delicious Nepalese version of dumplings containing various fillings such as meat and/or vegetables.

There’s a group of boys beat-boxing in the bar next to me which provides me with the soundtrack to my meal.
