    Thanks rpn - that's quite a trip down memory lane - though my memory of Nepal does not go back as far as that. Excellent stuff.

    Thank you for sharing your photos with us. They have brought back a lot of memories for us. We first went to Nepal in 1994. It's changed a lot since then.

    Thanks for the comments, I'm glad you're enjoying them. How different is the trekking these days? I imagine the trails won't have changed much, just the facilities and hopefully the hygiene?

    I think this was Phortse


    I had a great few days staying with this gentlemen in his Gokyo lodge, it was into May by now and there weren't many trekkers any more. We got on well, I needed to put some weight back on after 10 days of illness and his cooking was fantastic. Of course the spectacular setting helped!

    A storm came thru that kept me there a another day or two

    Namche



    The waitlisted passenger queue. After waiting 3 days I bagged the last seat on a flight as I was the lightest passenger - so there was an advantage to the dysentry!

    It was great just relaxing in the KTM Guest house garden

    Second crack at Annapurna Sanctuary



    Plenty of snow, only two rooms had been partially cleared of snow in the lodge



    Unfortunately the weather never cleared

    KTM bus park



    Possibly Bhaktapur? Spent a couple of days doing day trips on a bicycle from KTM. Was intrigued by the scaffolding.



    Are the big signs still scattered around the city?



    Had a fantastic time in Nepal, lovely people, a walkers paradise, loved it. I haven't posted many pics of the mountains as the old slide copies don't do them justice compared with the stunning digital images on this site, and I guess the mountains haven't changed in the last 25 years either.
