Love Happy Trek

afisglghb

A year ago, right after the terrible earthquake that shook Nepal, you showed your heart giving love & giving happy to our brother Lama and his family in need… This love and this happy we want to give now back to you.

Whether you are a direct donor or a Special Edition buyer, brother Lama & Sega designed this non-profit journey in Nepal exclusively for you.

We invite you in a Love Happy Trek for two weeks, from the 15th to the 29th of October 2016, to explore the stunning beauty of the himalayan land. From the famous landmarks of Kathmandu to Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital hidden in the Khumbu Valley, offering breathtaking views of Mt. Everest and other majestic himalayan peaks, you will encounter unforgettable places and faces.

Recovering after the earthquake is a slow and difficult process. Nepal needs many years to rebuild and heal, but everything is running normally now in the touristic sector. You’ll feel warmly welcomed and safe here, brother Lama & Sega taking care of all the aspects.

The 9 days of trekking are not difficult, but require a good physical condition. Although you’ll have to walk up to 5-6 hours every day of these 9 trekking days, previous mountain experience is not required. It’s a love and happy trek after all, not a killing one. And don’t worry, while brother Lama will guide you safely on the mountain trails, his porters will carry your stuff.

And don’t worry about getting sick because of the altitude. High altitude sickness is unlikely to occur below 4.000 meters, Namche Bazaar being the highest place (3.480 m) you are going to reach. However, brother Lama will make sure you’ll be properly acclimatised, so that you don’t have to experience even the mildest symptoms of high altitude sickness, such as light headaches or lack of appetite.

You don’t have to worry about the weather either. October is one of the best periods to see the snowy mountains of Nepal, with clear blue sky, warm days and pleasant nights (though a little cooler at higher altitudes).

A lifetime adventure, Love Happy Trek is our special gift to you. Our way to return the love and the happy you gave to brother Lama and his family a year ago, in times of despair. Possible, why not?
