We’ve just completed our Colourful Journey for 2012 (our Rangi Changi Yatra) and a wonderful time was had by all! We are taking bookings for November 2013. Like our other Colourful Journeys, this trip is 14 days in length and utterly unique! Our last trippers had a fantastic time and would be happy to be in touch with anyone who would liek to find out more.
You need to be flexible, good humoured and have a certain stamina for shopping and cold showers but are rewarded by having a wonderful holiday in an incredibly fascinting country with other flexible and good humoured people. Many superlatives I know, but warranted. For many, the highlight of the trip has been the time spent in Birtamod with the ladies of Samunnat Nepal. Read more about the trip here. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or contact Bishnu at Himalayan Sunrise for more detailed information.
As is obvious if you have read ANY of this website, I have strong connections with Nepal where I travelled many times, first as a teenager, and then whenever I could. My husband and I fell in love over slides of Nepal and big life decisions have been made in the serenity of the mountains.
I have trekked many, many times-with my parents and sister, my husband, my daughters and many friends. When our daughters left home, my husband and I were lucky enough to have the chance to live and work in eastern Nepal in Dharan/Birtamod for nearly four years. And I return a couple of times each year to continue the involvement I have with the women of Samunnat Nepal and to co-lead some journeys.
I love sharing the rich culture of Nepal and the handicraft traditions and enjoy travelling with like minded people off the beaten track. I am incredibly lucky to have a dear Nepali brother, mero bhai, Bishnu Rai, who is even more passionate about sharing his country with people than I am. Bishnu has MANY years experience in trekking and touring and an incredibly kind and generous heart. In addition to the many other treks he leads, we do one “cultural tour” and one trek together each year-usually in March/April and October/November.
In May 2013 we are taking a group to the Upper Mustang Region. This group, and a second group that Bishnu is leading is full but we are taking bookings for a trek into the Siklis region in April 2014. Check Bishnu’s website for details of these treks and others that he is leading throughout the year.
