This is just a quick note to let you know that I have arrived back in Nepal and am busy packing my bags, interviewing a few expeditions for Miss Hawley and just getting used to my very different life here again.
Monica, our expedition doctor, Lakchu, our amazing chef and I will take the bus to Arughat on Friday morning and will start walking to Samagoan, where we will meet the rest of our team, who will be flying there by helicopter on Sunday, 29 August.
I am really looking forward to the walk-in as I have heard a lot about this beautiful area, and the Manaslu Circuit is supposed to be one of the most amazing places in Nepal. I hope the weather will be on our side as it has been raining a lot lately and the monsoon is still in its full swing. We will probably be faced with a lot of cloud, muddy paths and of course leeches, who love the wet weather and come out as soon as the rains begin to fall
I will try and keep my website updated, however, as I will be writing the Himex Newsletter again, just click here for the latest news on Manaslu.
If you are interested in the weather we are facing on the mountain, you can click on the link on the left side of my website. I am not sure how accurate it is but it will certainly give you an indication of whether we will be basking in the sun or shuffling snow.
In the meantime, I hope that the floods in Pakistan will subside and the country will start recovering soon as it will be a long way to go.
