In 1998 Vic Taylor organized and led a trek in Nepal for some climbers from Cheylesmore Community Centre. This website is a belated attempt to record the trip after a gap of 14 years. Most of the material, maps photographs, etc were collected soon ater the trip and left to gather dust.
Vic used a trekking agency in Nepal called Slush Trekking to manage the logistics of the trip. Apart from an entry in the online list of Nepalese trekking agencies there is no trace of Slush Trekking on the web.
Entry for Slush Trekking: Sn: 347 Reg.No:346 Agency name: Slush Trekking and Expedition Pvt. Ltd. Reg. Date: 2053 Address: Kathmandu, Thamel Tel: 418164 Renewed date: 2053-12-06 Valid Upto: 2056-12-05
The trek by Kanjiroba Treks & Expedition (P) Ltd. described below has a similar itererary to our trek and the description gives a good idea of the terrain we covered.
This region lies between LANGTANG range and EVERST range and the side of both MOUNT LANGTANG and MOUNT EVEREST are the highlights of this trek.
The trekkers will be rewarded with the enchanting view of Majestic Mountain GAURI SHANKER. The route is near by the tibet border side so that one can understand a little about Tibetan culture too. This area is mostly used by Buddhist people However, we can also see the Brahmin, chhetri,Tamang and Sherpa villages and theirs life style.
The option of crossing Tashi lapcha pass (5755m.) to go to Namche Bazar of Everest region is an adventure of its own kind. In this trail the Glacial Lake Tsho Rolpa offers the experience of lifetime.
