Woof! Welcome to
Liz on the climb of Mera Peak, Nepal

Nepal means a lot to us. This part of the website is dedicated to Nepal, and here you'll find stories of our adventures.

I'd like to say a special thank-you to our friend Nurbu, who we found by good fortune. He is, like the meaning of his name, a 'DIAMOND'.

If you'd like to ask Nurbu to organise a trek, internal flight, balloon-ride, hotel, etc., then you can contact him by e-mail: Nurbu

Great bunch of kids in a village near Mt. Manaslu


After many years of being unable to visit Nepal due to health reasons, we've now been able to return. Read all about our adventure from the links below.
