ATC Nepal Expedition: October 2020
ATC Nepal Expedition
The Lost Valleys
ATC proposes to run an expedition to the Naar – Phu region in Nepal. The 2012 expedition to Mustang Kingdom passed through this area, the leader has been there twice!
This will be of shorter duration than past expeditions, hopefully allowing people who were unable to be away for so long to participate.
Dates to be confirmed yet, but possibly leaving NZ on 28 or 29 September, official start in Kathmandu 1st October. The itinerary is 21 days depart Kathmandu for home 20 October.
Discussion is ongoing with Jamie McGuinness of Project Himalaya. We have made 2 expeditions , to Dolpo and Kanchenjunga with this company and been very well served. Project Himalaya provide Sherpa leaders, camp cooks, porters, and sometimes mule teams. Tents and sleeping mats, eating utensils, and food are all provided. We carry only our day gear.
This year we are extending the invitation to members of the Hawaii club to join us. Numbers are limited to 12 total.
Trek cost to be confirmed but approx. US$3000.00, plus airfares, last year we paid NZ$1150.00 return to Kathmandu. No money required at present, expressions of interest to the leader:
