I was in Nepal 24th Dec 1999 to 13th Jan 2000.
Mostly trekking in Annapurna. Took bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara, then flue to Jompson by Lumbini air way.
View from air plane was beautiful and mountain was sooo close to us. Start from Jompson to Kagubeni then Jhorkoth(Mukthnah), Marpha,Lete, Thatopani, Gorepani, poon hill and back to Pokhara.
Every morning, leave about 6:00am, after 11:00 am, mountain hide in the cloud. 4 or 5:00 pm gets dark.
I spent new years eve in Jhorkoth (3700m) with 2 Japanese guys 1 french guy 1 Canadian couple 2 American guys we celebrate each country's new years time that we were together, but I couldn't count down in Nepali new year.
