Namaste. Autumn Update 2020.

Dear All,

Namaste from Nepal. We hope this message finds you well all over the world.

As the big festival of Dashain is upon us in Nepal, it is starting to reflect a change in the air. The monsoon green foliage are changing to the autumn red & orange. The morning air is crisp, the skies are deep blue & the mountains are clearly visible – everyone is in the mood to celebrate the biggest festival of the year. On a normal year, this would be the start of the trekking season. But, this is anything but a normal year & as the impact of Covid-19 has been felt worldwide. Thankfully, all of us at Hiuchuli Treks are well & in good spirits. As we celebrate the autumn Dashain festival this year, we shall keep in our mind & hearts the millions of people affected in Nepal & throughout the world.

There will be a time to travel again & meet all our friends & guests, from all over the world. Till then, we wish you safe health & Happy Dashain.
