Ana's Journey to Nepal

Current Location

Kande, Nepal

Hi, I'm Ana, and I am both studying in the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu, and exploring ancient trade routes in northern Indian and in the Himalayan mountains. Join me!


I have spent the past two weeks trekking through the valleys of the Himalayas in Nepal, including five days living in Larjung, a remote village. Come read about my time in Larjung!


Where does the time go? I leave Nepal in less than a week! In this journal, I reflect on my time in Nepal and give you some advice for the future. Read on! 

Field Notes

Imagine if the garbage truck didn't come every week? What would happen to all the trash? In Nepal, trash collection is not quite poor, which leads to trash building up in streets and rivers.


I have been doing research in Pokhara for the past month. Pokhara is famous for being one of the best places in the world to go paragliding, but the best for me are the sunsets over Fewa Lake.
