Our tea house trek was challenging but incredible. The first day was had beautiful views of the rolling “hills” of the Kathmandu Valley, which seemed liked mountains to me. The clouds and smog covered the Himalayas which loomed just beyond the hills. We were all worried that we would never be able to see them. To our astonishment, on the morning of our second day we woke up to see towering, snow covered peaks just beyond the hills. From monkeys and waterfalls to the Himalayas and hills spotted with rice paddies, we got to see a lot of the country side on our small but mighty three day adventure.
