Sherpas leave Everest; some expeditions nix climbs

Posted by kp subedi on April 22, 2014 at 11:14pm 0 Comments

Sherpa guides were leaving Mount Everest's base camp on Wednesday as part of a walkout following the mountain's deadliest disaster, as some expedition companies announced that they were canceling their climbs this season.

"There are a lot of Sherpas leaving this morning, and in the next two days there will be a huge number that will follow," Marzec, 67, from San Diego, said by phone from the base camp. He said he had already decided to abandon his climb.

Tusli Gurung, a guide who was at the base camp on Wednesday, estimated that nearly half the Sherpas had already left.

The walkout is certain to disrupt a climbing season that was already marked by grief following Friday's…

Are you thinking of attending the Adventure Travel World Summit 2014 in Ireland?

Posted by Jason Bragg on April 22, 2014 at 6:37pm 0 Comments

We have started a group for those wanting to hook up and plan potential meetings at the summit.

We would love to hear from you. Everyone will be attending the Summit for different reasons. Mine are:

1 To meet people in the Adventure Travel Industry and talk travel

2 To get a feel for how different businesses are dealing with their travel software needs

3 Catchup with clients also attending

The focus for me will be building relationships. With the ATTA, members and media. In no particular order.

If you have some of the same aim or you have some questions you would like answered by experienced summiter come join the group.

Germans marry the Chepang way

Posted by kp subedi on April 22, 2014 at 12:10am 0 Comments

CHITWAN - One of the most backward and possibly the least numbered communities in Nepal, the Chepangs at Jingalaw with just four houses located in Siddhi-8 indulged in celebr ations for two days. The impoverished community which rarely finds an occasion to celebrate were participating in the marriage ceremony of a German couple, Andre Winkler and Pauline Geier.

The couple sealed their 10-year relationship by getting married in accordance with the Chepang tradition. The couple who happen to be frequent visitors to Nepal said that they had come to Nepal this time with a different motive.

The necessary arrangements for the ceremony were made by Hotel Monalisa in Sauraha upon the request of the couple. While hundreds of Chepangs had come to revel in the ceremony, the hotel…

Posted by Sagar Pandey on April 21, 2014 at 10:34pm 0 Comments

Nepal is not only famous for its natural grandeur and mighty Himalayas, but also its peculiar culture, tradition and custom. This multitude of peculiarity and novelty is also reflected within Nepali food culture. Food in Nepal is as diverse as the country itself and is not only rich in taste but also reflects the culture and customs of local people. In many communities, brewing and drinking alcohol is a century-old tradition. Brewing is still done in many homes to prepare alcohol for traditional rituals and family members during get together and festivals. Nepal boasts a diverse range of local alcoholic brews, most of them being indigenous with unique way of making. Here are some of the alcoholic delights to accompany you while in Nepal:

  • Raksi: Raksi is the distilled alcoholic drink of Nepal usually made from Kodo (a variety of millet found in Nepal). It can also be made up of corn, rice, wheat, barley or fruits. CNN has placed Nepal’s ‘Raksi’, an alcoholic…
