Himalayas and Nepal Maoists

Maoists and Trouble in The Himalayas
Some parts of the Himalayas are dangerous these. Maoists and government police and troops have been battling in Nepal the past few years. No tourists or trekkers have been injured in this bloody conflict, yet. And the Maoists have said they want trekkers to come to Nepal. But in this type of bloodshed, danger is there. Recent reports indicate captured police have been stripped and shot. Some have been beheaded. As the violence in this part of the Himalayas escalates it makes it more dangerous for everyone who is there.

As a visitor to the Himalayas you'll want to check the situation carefully. Not only might Nepal turn dangerous, but so can areas of Pakistan where Americans and other Westerners might not be welcome. In part of the India Himalayas, fighting has been going on for years, and there have been Westerners killed there.

Himalayas, Sagamartha and Yeti

A few people use Everest as an ego trip. But for most people in the Himalayas, Everest is a sacred place. It's where one acquires an outlook on life that inspires growth and knowledge.

And in fact, much of the Himalayas are like that. The mountains are so big as to make humans insignificant. And that's the idea behind going there, for many. As the snow capped peak rise far away, one get a sense of just what a special place the Himalayas are. Home of Yeti, the abominable snowman, an amazing Himalayan culture, and legend.
