Just the name conjures up images of majestic mountains, incredible landscapes, and some of the world’s most enchanting natural beauty.
For many people, trekking in Nepal is a lifelong dream.
It certainly was for Jason, and last December, he was able to achieve it by hiking through the Himalayas for an entire month.
Today, he joins us to give a complete recap of what the experience was like (hint: amazing) and also provide everything you could ever want to know about the logistics of planning and pulling off a similar trip.
Everything from what route to take, whether you should hire a guide, and even where you should buy piyush (and what exactly it is).

Thanks to this podcast we contacted Samir and he ended up looking after a troupe of three families for three weeks in Nepal. And he was absolutely amazing. Don’t be alarmed by less than perfect written English, Samir’s spoken English is excellent. He hired two guides (friends/family) to manage our group who displayed the same duty of care as him. We are very grateful to this podcast giving us the opportunity to meet Samir. We will consider him a friend for life. Cheers – Steve
@Steve – Awesome, so glad you that you got to meet him. I’m waiting until the day that I get to Nepal and get to meet Samir myself as well – but anyone that Jason loves is a friend of mine!
Very cool! This came at exactly the right time! Me and my gf are considering going to Nepal on our trip across northern India next month! Very timely! :)
@Ladan- Let me know how it goes!
