Steve: An Unexpected Journey in East Nepal
Steve had done a great job working with us to cultivate and curate his custom itinerary. We had an almost 30-day trek set up for him in East Nepal on the Jaljale Himal ridgea; however, after unusually heavy monsoon that led to snows and dangerous conditions, the ridge was deemed not safe for such remote trekking and he had to be rerouted. So while on trail Steve and the staff reached out to us in the home office and together we rerouted his itinerary based on his particular interests and the richness of what is available in east Nepal.
Being in the foothills of the Himalaya reminds us all that there are greater forces at work in the world than anyone can control. While we here at ATC know that there isn't anything we can do about the weather, what we can promise is that we know the parts of the world that we operate in better than any one else. And if any problems arise, weather or otherwise, we're equipped and more than happy to do whatever we have to, to be sure that you'll still be able to enjoy your journey. Despite the strike, the weather and the change of plans, Steve still managed to enjoy every step along the way!
