My friends Yam Gurung and Samantha Schuster have put together their trekking company. Here’s the site: The Trekking Yeti.
Have I talked enough yet about this wonderful beautiful country?
From their site:
Our vision is to share the spirit and beauty of the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal with travellers seeking a safe adventure and renewed energy. Yam Gurung was born in a small and remote village in the Annapurna region where his parents still live today. In addition to being an accomplished trekking guide, porter and organizer, Yam is an experienced chef, father of two and husband of Canadian born Samantha Schuster. As well as being an experienced nurse in the Canadian North and a registered midwife Samantha has traveled widely in Asia, Africa, and Europe. Including, of course, numerous sojourns to Nepal where she and Yam first met in 1998. When they are not in Nepal, Yam and Samantha live in London, Ontario with their two children Charlotte Maya and Kam Lama.
Our family recently returned from Nepal, and Karen has put up some pictures at http://web.mac.com/karencu which cover many of the sites Trekking Yeti offer on their tours.
