Mountain treks in Peru, Bolivia, and Nepal, a boatride down the Amazon from
Peru to Columbia, an exploration of the semi-jungle Pampas of Bolivia,
exploring the Chitwan jungle in Nepal, and many cities and villages throughout
these countries. Coming soon - Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.
Peru is a fascinating place. The Incan ruins are amazing. And the people
are friendly. I love a
good physical challenge. So in 1998, I traveled to Peru to trek in the Andes
followed by a boatride down the Amazon River to explore the rainforest. The
hike to Macchu Pichu certainly was challenging. I was part of an international
group of 13. Even without consideration to the altitude, the trail is very
strenuous, giving those that successfully finish the trek a sense of
accomplishment. Along the way, I encountered some of the most beautiful
scenery I've seen anywhere. The natural scenery is fantastic and the Incan
ruins are amazing.
Nepal is a scenically beautiful country. And the people are
friendly. In 1999, I traveled to
Nepal and trekked in the Langtang region of the Himalayas. This area is near the
Tibetan border and is inhabited primarily by Buddhists. Along the way, there
were beautiful high altitude scenery of mountains and glaciers and pleasant
buddhist people. I also explored Katmandu and other cities/villages in Nepal
before traveling south to Chitwan to roam the jungle looking for tigers,
rhinos, and other wildlife.
In 2001, I spent a month exploring Bolivia.
During my explorations there, I did the Choro trek through the beautiful Andes.
Absolutely incredible. I also spent several days in the semi-jungle pampas
area. The wildlife there was truly fantastic. I also spent time exploring
Incan and pre-Incan ruins around Cochabamba and the very ancient ruins at
Tiahuanacu, thought to be the birthplace of civilization in the Americas.
Bolivia - a heart-wrenchingly poor country, but a marvelous place.
