Hi Everyone...

If you walk down any street in Thamel, the tourist district of Kathmandu, chances are you’ll find a ‘Dal Bhat Power 24 Hour’ t-shirt for sale. There’s truth to the slogan.

Dal bhat – a traditional dish of lentil soup and rice – is able to sustain the energy of everyday Nepalis who often eat it three times a day in between their work and play. It’s also the staple diet for trekkers and sherpas, providing them with enough body-fuel to tackle the region’s highest peaks.

Apart from thukpa and momos, another delicacy that’s worth sampling while you’re in Nepal is salty butter tea. Sherpas drink this tea several times a day for energy and to help them stay warm in the mountains. It’s believed to assist with altitude sickness, which is why many trekkers take to drinking this brew when they are in the Himalayas. The tea is made with yak butter, milk, salt and special tea leaves.

Look forwards to seeing you all here,
Cheers
