Voyage au Népal du 3.9-17.9.17 Grâce à une amie, j'ai eu la chance de découvrir l'agence de trek "Action-Himalaya" dirigée par Sher Magar. En effet, mon envie de partir fut pressante et en à peine 2 mois, Sher m'a préparé le voyage que j'attendais. Mes désirs étaient assez clairs: visiter le Népal en faisant un trek d'environ 8-10 jours, traverser des régions peu-touristiques, afin de partir à la rencontre de l'authentique vie népalaise, sans se trouver sur une autoroute pédestre. Le 4.9, j'arrive à Katmandou accueillie comme une reine. J'ai le plaisir à ce moment là de rencontrer mon guide: Rajesh. Le lendemain déjà, nous partons en jeep pour rejoindre le début du trek low-Solokhumbu. En effet, mon souhait était de partir le plus rapidement possible sans vraiment visiter Katmandou. Pendant 9 jours, nous avons sillonné les Chemins de villages en villages, rencontré des personnes formidables. Les népalais sont d'une gentillesse, bienveillance et générosité incroyable. Parfois, presque nous mettant mal à l'aise. Au bout de 3 jours, après une soirée dansante dans un lodge avec les sherpas. Nous avons gravis le pikey-peak 4074 m! Un joli challenge pour moi qui déboulait sur une longue journée de marche. Tous les jours étaient différents, les chemins étaient parfois rocailleux, forestiers, montagneux, les paysages changeants, une meteo un peu capricieuse mais qui m'a quand même permis de profiter du spectacle himalayen. Les cultures sont très nombreuses et différentes dans la région visitée. Étant une amoureuse des animaux, j'ai été gâtée tout Au long du périple: yak, vache, jhoppa, mules, chèvres, moutons, chats, biches et même quelques chiens voulant se greffer à notre trek. Les journées de marche étaient plus ou moins longues entre 4-9h. Au total, nous avons parcouru près de 170km... d'un point de vue difficulté: je m'y suis bien trouvée, Avec quelques montées qui m'ont données du fil à retorde. Mais dans l'ensemble, Tout s'est très bien passé, Et finalement, j'étais aussi à la recherche de quelques difficultés afin de repousser les limites. Rajesh était un guide plus qu' à la hauteur de l'image qu'ont ses compatriotes. Il veillait au grain afin que je ne manque de rien. Il savait me laisser tranquille en marchant quand j'en avais besoin ou savait quand il fallait engager la discussion pour me motiver dans les moments plus rudes. J'ai eu un super Feeling Avec cet homme incroyable, Avec qui j'espère pouvoir garder contact. Coup de cœur du voyage : Kharikhola, village tant bien habité. En effet, les habitants m'ont accueillie comme s'ils me connaissaient depuis toujours. J'ai pu avoir de très intéressantes discussions sur les problèmes Et diverses avancées en cours. Leur hôpital, en collaboration avec une association suisse action-kharikhola m'a profondément touché par rapport au peu de moyen et à un tel décalage par rapport aux pays occidentaux. Ce village est un endroit où je m'y suis sentie vraiment bien. D'ailleurs , j'ai décidé de rester un jour de plus, ce qui fut possible grâce à une organisation hors-paire de Sher et Rajesh. De retour à Katmandou, j'ai pu visiter la Ville en présence de mon fidèle guide. Certes, peu de temps sur place, vu que j'avais écourté en restant plus longtemps à kharikhola. Pour ma part, c'était amplement suffisant, je ne suis pas très "Ville" Et ne me sens pas vraiment à ma place dans tout ce monde. C'est assise dans l'aéroport de Katmandou que je rédige ces quelques lignes, l'esprit nostalgique. En effet, ces 2 semaines ont filé d'une vitesse incroyable. Je peux dire qu'une chose: Le Népal va me revoir venir visiter ses merveilles de la nature. En remerciant Sher Et Rajesh qui m'ont concocté un voyage magnifique que je ne suis pas prête d'oublier.
