Solu and Chitwan

In October 1998 Ray travelled to Nepal for an 11 day trek with Everest Trekking Canada in the Solu region of eastern Nepal, south of Everest. The group flew from Kathmandu to Phaplu and explored this beautiful and seldom trekked region. They visited monasteries and a school in Ringmo, sponsored by Everest Trekking Canada. They climbed Peekay, the high point of the trek at 13,000 ft (4,000 m), to enjoy spectacular views of Everest and surrounding mountains. Following the trek, the group travelled to the Royal Chitwan Park to stay at Tiger Tops for a 2 day jungle safari.
