We were long wondering – even at the stage of planning a trip, a few months before coming to Nepal – which trekking to choose. We were considering only budget option, we wanted to spend as little as possible, which greatly limited the number of choices. In Nepal, in many regions (the so-called restricted areas), such as Dolpo, Manaslu, Makalu, or Kanchenjunga you can not legally organize trekking on your own – without the help of agencies, porters support and without nepali guide. Until now, restrictions have been lifted in the Annapurna region, Langtang and Solukhumbu (Everest). If you want to choose a less frequented area, you have to pay much more. Travelers whose objectives usually determines the budget, choose mostly trekking in Langtang or Everest region, a popular trail around Annapurna, or around – lying in her neighborhood – Dhaulagiri massif. We decided to do the latest of them for several reasons. This trekking is considered difficult, there are only a few people going there, and along the way, you can summit a simple trekking (officially classified by the Nepal Mountaineering Association as an expedition peak) six-thousand-er Dhamus Peak (6013 m).

Bonus movie from our journey – border closing ceremony at Attari-Wagah near Amritsar.

Fourth part form our journey:  visit in Srinagar – the capital of Kashmir, Dharamsala i Amritsar – Sikhs’ holy city.

We landed in Nepal at the wrong time, in the hot pre-election period. On November 19, 2013 the elections to the Constituent Assembly- the second after the overthrowing the monarchy – took place. It was a difficult time for the Nepalese. Country plunged into political chaos. Election campaigns were accompanied by loud street demonstrations and protests. On November 11th began the so-called Bandh (in Nepali “closed”) – the general strike. Elections were boycotted by Maoist Communist Party, they called for nine-day transport strike. At that time, the traffic situation in Nepal has been severely compromised. Schools were closed and some workplaces. Riots began.

Quite spontaneously we went on another trek – this time in the Gahrwal Himalayas, located in the state of Uttarakhand, north-east of Delhi. We made Rishikesh our base for a couple of days. Since we did not have a detailed plan, it took us a few days to prepare for the trek. We couldn’t decide for long, exactly where to go and what route we want to take. Eventually we decided basing on a quick and direct access from Rishikesh to starting point and uncomplicated return.

Third part of our “Asia na lajcie” trip – Trekking to Stok Kangri, easily accessible from Leh in four days.

We published our first photo report on (in polish):


Amritsar – the holy city for the followers of Sikhism – a place very different from all that we have visited in India so far. Sikhs are people pious, kind and helpful. The main principle of the religion adopted by them, is a service of the common good, in Amritsar the tradition of creating a community, a place for all people is being continued. The central point of the city is the Golden Temple, rising on a nectar lake (amrit sar). Life goes on here 24 hours a day: people pray, talk, eat, sit, lie – or just be – all the time. Undeniably it is well worth visiting Amritsar just to experience the atmosphere of that place, but there is much more to see in the city!
