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.
