On an Aerial Sherpa

Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer. Leopards, cobras, monkeys, rivers and trees; they all served as my teachers when I lived as a wanderer in the Himalayan foothills. (Radhanath Swami, clergy)

I flew aeroplanes, parachuted, walked on my own across the Himalayas – you name it; if it was dangerous, I did it. (Scilla Elworthy, activist)

I was never comfortable with the risk of climbing in the Himalayas, or the amount of time in idleness that is involved in the Everest expedition. (Steve Fossett, aviator)

I would love to go to the Himalayas and cross over into Nepal to do the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. (Natalie Dormer, actress)

Last week, Nia (from Turkey) mentioned the two places in the world that she wants to visit the most are Alaska and the Himalayas. Because last week’s Explore took us to the Alaskan sky, this post takes us on a brief aerial journey from Kathmandu to the highest peaks in the world … the Himalayas. Enjoy your trip with Nia.
