Mera peak with Amphulapcha La Pass and island Peak (6476m).

Welcome to Gurla Mandata

Mera Peak with Amphulapcha La Pass and island Peak (6476m).

Mera Peak with Amphulapcha La Pass and island Peak (6476m). After summit Mera (6476m) continue over Mera La pass and drop into the majestically beautiful Hunku Valley. Moreover, trekking groups rarely visit the valley. Hukku Valley is wide open, remote and truly wonderful valley. For several days we walk northwards and encounter many glacial lakes. They are likely to be frozen solid which allows us to walk right over the top of them. Our last camp spot before the pass is  Panch Pokhari (5 lakes). It is an exposed alpine expanse where you feel awed and humbled by your amazing surround.

Amphulapcha pass is a difficult and demanding pass, but guides will be there to help and encourage you all the way .We start by climbing up rocky scree and approach some magnificent pristine glacial formations. You may need to be cut ice steps and fix the ropes to assist everyone up onto the glacier. Depending on conditions, you may need crampons to climb the final snow slope to the narrow pass itself.

The view from here simply provides some of the most breathtaking alpine scenery. Furthermore, we are unlikely to have seen any other trekkers since leaving Mera La. The descent is steep and depending on conditions, you may involve being belayed part of the way down. At the end of a challenging but exhilarating day, our campsite is a lovely sheltered grassy area. It is a welcome spot for a rest. We descend to Chukhung and then into the Khumbu valley. Our itinerary takes in the beautiful Thyangboche Monastery and the colorful town of Namche Bazaar, before we finally arrive back to Lukla. Organized by Gurla mandata trekking.

My country Nepal

Nepal is a very beautiful country. It is also a landlocked country. China lies in the east side of the country. Likewise, India in west, north and south. It lies in the northern hemisphere. Our country has three geographical zones. They are Himalayan, Mountainous and Terai. Here, we have monsoon climate. It is very cold and dry during winter. And hot, stormy and rainy in summer. Furthermore, it is rich in natural beauty and resources. Here are long and wide rivers. Such as Koshi, Gandaki, Karnali, etc. Moreover, here are large lakes also. Like Rupa, Begnas, Rara, etc. Likewise, we have green valleys, lovely water falls, etc. Similarly, it is rich in religious and historical heritages. Lumbini, Gorkha, Janakpur, Kathmandu are the famous examples.

Nepal is highly diverse country. And has rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has many mountains. It includes eight of the world’s ten highest mountains. This also includes the highest  mountain Sagarmatha. It is known as Mount Everest in English. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. It contains over 240 peaks. They are more than 20,000 ft. (6,096 m) above sea level.

People of many castes and religions live here. About hundred languages are spoken  here. Our popular foods are dal bhat, dhindo, gundurk etc. Similarly, Dashain, Tihar, Lhosar, Id etc. They are the most popular festivals. We celebrate these festivals very happily. Most  of the people are farmers. They grow rice, corn, wheat, millet, potato etc. Some people in the cities are businessmen also.  Likewise, some have industries. Therefore, people living here are very laborious.

Nepal is rich in natural resources. So, tourists love to visit our country. They can see endangered birds and animals here. Also, they can enjoy natural beauty. So, tourism is our potential industry.

Nepal is small but rich in natural resources. Although it is poor by economic condition. Nepal is developing country. To develop soon,  we have to aware all the citizen. We must provide education equally. To both men and women. Government should bring advance program. This may help citizen in development process. And, provide different facilities to citizen. And it’ll give benefit to citizen. Finally, it’ll help the  government also.

Nepal is a beautiful country. So, we have to publish it all over the world. And it’ll help to attract tourist. In this way, we can control our economic condition. Therefore, we can achieve success by developing our strengths. face book
