Adam Angel and his crew sent a photo from SeaTac as they departed for Nepal. Adam says they are feeling strong and excited for the big adventure ahead of them. They have 31 days in Nepal coming up… with a remote trekking trip ahead of them.
The Dolpo area is tucked right up againist the Tibet border in western Nepal and is an incredible trekking destination for strong hikers. But, first they have to get there! Today they fly to Seoul, where they spend the night. Then, a direct flight the next day to Kathmandu. Doesn’t get much better than that in terms of travel to Nepal (12 time zones for us on the west coast). After a couple nights in Kathmandu they will fly to Nepalgunj in western Nepal, where they overnight before flying the next moring by small plane to Masinchaur airport. From there they start walking in an easterly direction towards the destination, Jomsom. It is going to be a heck of an adventure and we will look forward to following along!
