I would like to thank all those who helped in the rebuild work after the massive disaster created by the earth quake, last year. I would also like express my appreciation to all those who have trekked with Keep Walking Nepal and helped Nepal to recover in economic disaster. Currently we are rebuilding the collapsed School building and Buddhist monastery. Most of the local houses, “Mani” wall and Medical Centers were rebuilt. The Medical Center is now at the stage of providing regular services.

We hope that we will again get the opportunity to have your hospitality in the future and hope we can have your continuous help and suggestions

 

Thank you!

Juliette’s Angel:Death Desire Destiny An Epic Adventure in Australia, Nepal & Iceland.

2016-06-21
Namaste. We have very good news.

A client of KEEP WALKING NEPALhas written a book. Pratap, our guide,led Juliette Power and her daughter Bonnie up to GOKYO LAKES in the Everest Region. According to Juliette, the trek not only challenged her, it changed her life.

Everyone comes to Everest with a dream.

Trekkers want base camp. Mountaineers want the summit.

Pilgrims seek enlightenment. Others need to find themselves. Not me.

I only came for a walk—or so I thought.

We are one year on from the devastating life changing earthquake that hit Nepal in 2015.

How are we faring you may ask?

How is Nepal recovering?

I will be the first to admit it has been difficult, actually very difficult. Keep Walking Nepal along with many other groups became involved in helping to REBUILDNepal. Things are slowly improving but we have some way to go yet. The support of many people from around the world has helped the Nepali people to recover and to have a life again. Some things will never be the same for many people, but we are determined and courageous and love our country and are working hard to help those who cannot help them-selves. We are very grateful for your support whether it was financial or by trekking with us or sending your prayers over the last 12 months - it was very welcome.

Community Project in Junbesi with a group of Australians

2016-04-30

In March 2016 a group of five Australians lead by Crish Chapman had taken part in a community project in Junbesi assisting with the school reconstruction. During the earthquake, last April (2015), three of the school buildings collapsed, forcing the schools to relocate to temporary located near KPHMN health clinic. Their job was to clear the site of one of the collapsed building so that local engineers could assess the remaining foundations prior to reconstruction. They had shifted many tons of rock and rubble to the school playground, resulting in the creation of a mound of rock which they named as Mt. Junbesi. They also have worked with school children and teachers and also had experience of the Holi Festival.

During off days they had trek to Thuptenchholing Monastry and Phurteng. They stayed at Choti’s lodge where they had party with school teacher and experienced disco Junbesi style.

Nepal………………………our unexpected challenge!

2013-12-01

Having viewed the images of a friend’s trip to Nepal, and being impressed with what I saw and heard, I rounded up several other walkers from our Keep Walking group in SA and, together with my wife Meredith, travelled to Kathmandu in anticipation of a mind-boggling trekking experience in the Himalayas.

We chose to book with an international travel company and were most fortunate in being allotted Ang Ngima Sherpa as our primary trek leader. It transpired that he had summitted nine major peaks in the Himalayas, including Everest on three occasions and had a wealth of leadership skills and experience: a remarkable young man in many ways as we were to find out.
