Travel Testimonials

The trip was beyond my wildest expectations.  We were totally immersed in the Sherpa, Nepali and Tibetan culture and landscape, thanks to our most knowledgeable guide, Karsang.  On the day of fleece distribution to the hundreds of school children, we were brought to tears experiencing their joy in receiving a scarf, hat or fleece jacket.

To travel to Nepal with Sally Hunsdorfer is a very special experience that no traditional tour operator could ever replicate.  Because of Sally’s long history and fast friendships with the Sherpa people I was welcomed into their homes and lives like family.  I was able to participate in village life and to learn about the Sherpa culture and Buddhist customs up close and personal, as they say.  The guides and porters who accompanied us on our trek were long-time friends as well…..and they knocked themselves out to see to it that we were well taken care of and safe every step of the way.  I came back from Nepal with more than a lot of pretty pictures.  I came away profoundly changed by what I learned and with new friends I hope I will have for a lifetime!

Traveling with the Himalayan Project does not involve just trekking.  Yes, under the expert and inspiring leadership of Karsang Sherpa we were able to do both the Mt. Kailash and Mustang treks through scenery that is beyond description.  But there was another level that most treks don't include. That is the spiritual level - the understanding and appreciation of the Buddhist faith and way of life and the Sherpa culture.  These insights were life changing!

Unless the things I believe in, i.e. the sanctity of all life: human life that includes women and children and native peoples of the earth; non-selective species; the life of wild places; the life of mystery and the life of the earth......unless these beliefs are grounded in interconnectedness, they can become shrill and hurtful to life itself. It is a comfort to have found you!
