Maoist bandh hits life in Gandaki zone
A general strike called by the Maoists affected normal life in the districts of Gandaki zone on Saturday.
In Pokhara, vehicular traffic remained largely off the road and major marketplaces wore a deserted look throughout the day. Few public buses did ply on the city streets with the help of security officials but all long-route vehicles were stranded in Pokhara, reports said.
The bandh is intended to disrupt the civic reception of the King and the Queen in Pokhara on Sunday. The Civic Felicitation Organizing Committee has said it has made arrangements for the transportation of people attending in the program from outside Pokhara. 400 buses have been kept ready for the program, which will be escorted by security personnel.
Similarly, the bandh affected normal life in Gorkha, Lamjung and Tanahun districts also where shops remained closed while no passenger buses ventured out the whole day. nepalnews.com mbk March 27 04

Minister Thapa rules out talks with Maoists
Home Minister Kamal Thapa Saturday said that talks with the Maoists at the present situation are unlikely.
Speaking at a face-to-face program organized by the Kaski branch of the Reporters’ Club Nepal in Pokhra today, Thapa said the government was not going to give the Maoists another chance to strengthen their military in the name of talks.
“Maoists used the ceasefire period to reinforce their military and later walked out brashly. The government is not going to take any chance this time round,” said the minister.
Thapa who is also the spokesperson of the government maintained that the very statement of the Maoist leadership saying talks are part of their war negates the essence of dialogue with them. “Unless they change their mindset, talks with will are useless,” he said.
Challenging the rebel outfit to assure the people that they are serious for a peaceful settlement, he said, there was no need for international mediation including that of the UN. He, however, dubbed UN secretary general Kofi Annan’s concerns serious.
Thapa was of the view that the Maoists have pushed back the possibility of talks by launching the brutal attack in Beni Bazaar, Myagdi. “If they want talks, they should first of all make an environment,” said he. “No such environment is in sight at the moment,” he added.
At the program, Thapa also informed that preparations for the civic felicitation of the King and the Queen in Pokhara on Saturday have completed claiming the program was going to be a grand success. nepalnews.com mbk March 27 04

My suggestion is that when you arrive in Thamel, try to stay away from those pub or restaurant full of western people at night, who know what will happen next time?
I will back to HK tomorrow, thanks god!

Just finished the Poon Hill circle from 19 to 22 Mar.
It is cloudy all days and the temp was 35C.
1. It is still safe to trek in tourist area.
2. On 21 Mar, Maoist block the road from Pokhara to Naya Pul.
It also block the supply and information tranfer of the Nepal army to Naya Pul.
3. Maoist start attack in the area of Beni on 21 Mar early morning and that's why I
heard a lot of bombing when I going back to the Ghorepani from Poon Hill.
4. On the trail to Ghandruk from Ghorepani, my guide told me that we should go back
to Ghorepani if the helicoper of Nepal army drawing near. It was because the Nepal
army can't differentiate the Maoist and tourist.
I found I can only carry my own Back pack on the first day of trekking. How come your guys / girl can carry your own backpack in other long long trial like ABC or EBC in winter time? Any suggestion for my next visit? (If possible)

Thanks for your 1st hand info.
I also hired a porter for my big backpack. Depends on your time, all ABC, EBC, Jomsom and Around Annapurna treks are worth to go.

I just came back from my EBC+Kala Patter + Gokyo trekking. Believe it or not I took only 13 days!
I took 9 days to get to Gorak Shap and went to the EBC in the afternoon and Kalapatter the second morning. Then we went through the Cho La pass (Stay at Dzhong La overnight). We arrived Gokyo in the afternoon the second afternoon and climbed the Gokyo ri the second morning. After than we walked more than 10 hours from Gokyo to Namche Bazzar!!!! I was so homesick!!!!! Yesterday we went from Namche to Lukla, 6 hours walk and this morning I arrived Kathmandu. I miss civilizatio so much!!!!

Welcome back and congratulations!
How would you compare Kala Pattar and Gokyo Ri? Someone said that Gokyo Ri is better. Moreover, is the trail through Cho La very tough? Did you camping at Dzhong La?
I hope I will go Kala Pattar again in the future. I think I will walk similar to your path (though may not be able to complete in 13 days!)

我會於3月尾起程Jiri to EBC, Gokyo, 請問差電地區是否只可至Tengboche, 因我們同行有多部DC, 電對我們來說是很大的問題, 有無人有好的方法提供? 插頭是否2隻圓腳?
如果我們剛巧遇上罷工, 沒有公共巴士往Jiri, 我們可否租私營車前往?

我於97年曾到尼泊爾旅行，去過喜珠拉額山區，可惜因腸胃病，到Gorak Shep停留了兩天，最終連夜被人抬去救護站，上不到登山基地。如今已婚了，真不知到何年何月何日，還有沒有機會再補遺憾。又或者，那其實也是人生一段難得的經歷，未必是什麼遺憾呢？試問去登山基地的行山客中，有幾人會到Gorak Shep才折返的呢？
2004-03-15 13:50 來自香港的<站長>有以下回應：
我登山的主要目的主要在欣賞沿途的風物，不在於要「攻頂」，因此在遊記中也有提及我曾在登 Kala Pattar 途中因大霧想過放棄。你能到 Gorak Shep，其實已看過路上大部分能看到的，加上如你所說，那正是你人生的一段難得經歷，也不用有太大遺憾。
之前亦曾有一讀者從 Gorak Shep 走上 EBC 途中因不適要折返，最後亦上不成 Kala Pattar 要快速下山。另一讀者的四人登山組合，也有兩人只到 Gorak Shep，所以你也不是孤獨啊。
補充剛才第一位讀者的徵狀跟你相似，後來在 Pheriche 見過醫生診斷為中等嚴重的高山症，而我在非洲登 Kilimanjaro 時亦遇過不少人嘔吐。其實這是高山反應 + 大運動量的結果，如你上次沒有肚瀉，可能你是高山反應而不是腸胃病。
其實我也多次試過旅行途中去不成「終極目標」：01 年進不成四川稻城，02 年去不成洪都拉斯的 Copan，去年在玻利維亞也遇上示威去不成鹽湖。其實 00 年走 Everest Trek 也是因為到了尼泊爾後去不成西藏呢。

其實我現在做行程計劃也只是收集和整理好交通、景點基本資料如開放時間等以備途上應用，免得到步後才找浪費時間，另加草擬一個大概路線，實際走時往往邊走邊改。我似命中注定不能走坦途的，行程常有波折，上次回應漏說了 02 年去不成西藏阿里，第二次到尼泊爾也跟原來計劃有很大出入，想不隨遇而安也不成。
我明白你說不計劃而旅行的那份樂趣，如果我不用限定日期回家上班或假期能長些，我想我也會一切去到才算。現在我有時會在行程尾聲預算一、兩天「流浪」，像到西藏山南、泰國的南奔、緬甸的 Kyaik Tiyo 等，的確這樣走常有意外驚喜，算是現實下的折衷辦法吧。

Dear Old Dreamer & All,
Thanks for giving me a time to share:
heaven overheaded, earth stepped
inbetween, where my heart can stay
is your heart
where you go
is the journey to the soul mountain
a calling from the origin
love and passion
life and death
meadow, strem, morning dews
dusk, sky appearance, across the desert on horse back
strange stone, weired wood, odd owl
valley and village
forest and concrete forest
civilized and uncivilized
beauty or ugly
innocent face and innocent smile
thankful hand and leisurely foot
heavy rucksack and lighten heart
