Last year I went on a round-the-world trip, visiting several countries from my bucket list. The most memorable was probably Nepal. Nepal is a landlocked country between India and China in the centre of the Asian continent. It’s very rural and extremely mountainous, with some of the highest altitudes in the world. It’s also home to the highest peak in the world – Mount Everest.
I went hiking a lot in Nepal. The climate is quite hot and humid, but due to the mountains the weather can instantly change without notice! One day I was caught in a storm at the base of a mountain. The melting glaciers had caused a flood in the path in front of me and I was in the middle of nowhere!
I was in a valley in the region somewhere near the border to Tibet. The waters began to rise until I was trapped. The path in front of me and behind me was under water. In the end, I had to swim back to the path and cut my day short. It wasn’t a nice experience!
