17 February, Day 1 of the World Expeditions Great Himalaya Trail Nepal Traverse! By Robin Boustead

Posted on 14 Feb 2011

Everyone is excited, has been training hard to prepare and now the Great Himalaya Trail is before us.

We've successfully completed the last of our gear checks and we're well prepared for the the trail ahead.

Heavy cloud and fog delayed our departure from Kathmandu but it finally cleared, and we arrived in Bagdogra by 2pm.

Down on the Terai it was going to be a short drive of 3 hours to IIam set amongst amazing tea plantations.

We’re staying in a small local hotel in the largest town of Nepal’s eastern mid hills 

Tomorrow we drive to Tapeljung and the roadhead to begin trekking the inaugural Great Himalya Trail
