ON FOOT AND OUT OF RUPEES IN NEPAL Presented by Ken Ash and Zsa Dubois
Ken and Zsa (seasoned travelers, but not beyond making mistakes) experienced their "trip of a lifetime" in October of 2017. For five weeks they trod Kathmandu, Pokhara, the jungles of Chitwan and the Annapurna Circuit. Zsa's comment, "Nepal isn't heavy in creature comforts, but is unsurpassed in adventure." Ken's comment: "The first surprise came on stepping off the plane, the last on the way back to the airport. There were surprises every day in between." Ken and Zsa are eager to share their stories of mountains and shortcuts, temples and aggressive monkeys, leeches and super-sized spiders, beautiful people and of course the endless trek.
