Wesley’s experience:

Wesley in Nepal

Partied with the locals at a bar called Base Camp, run by the coolest Nepalese I’ve met. His name’s Paresh. He will hook you up with anything and anybody.

Hiked up in Nagarkot for amazing sights and fantastic fresh air.

Went for a kayaking hiking tour by a local adventure company. Great rapids.

Participated in a Nepalese wedding. Nepalese people are insanely friendly and they know how to have a ton of FUN!

Ate a lot of momos. If you don’t know what momos are, think Chinese “xiao long baos” dipped in Indian curry. Amazing.

It’s a dealbreaker when I’m stuck around large groups of package tourists.
