The Sake of Going
Everyone should go to Nepal at least once in their lifetime. The natural beauty will inspire you. The rampant poverty will humble you. The friendly, welcoming people will soften your hard edges. And the crowded, polluted streets of Kathmandu will give you pause. You can’t go there and feel nothing. Most venture to Nepal just to say they climbed the world’s tallest mountain and in doing so they miss the whole point of exploration. You go for the sake of going, not the sake of arriving.
