The country isn't full of hotels, but for me staying with a Ghurka family is special. They have a special place in the British Army. My husband is ex-army and he cannot speak too highly of them. So loyal - and oh so dangerous! (that's the Ghurkas)

Someone I know on another site, her Husband served w/them too during two different Tours in Afghanistan. When asked if all the stories about their fierceness and fighting prowess was true, he said if places were switched and he was a Taliban/ISIS Fighter that saw the Gurkas coming at his position w/the Battle Lust in their eyes, he'd drop his weapon, turn and run as far away as fast as possible. He also said once he was in a safe place, and he was beyond sure it was a safe place, then and only then would he check his pants.

Those who serve w/the Gurkas are very lucky to have done so, as from what I've learned over the years, that bond that's shared is taken literally to heart and you aren't a fellow soldier to them, but a Family Member. I am so looking forward to this trip for all the breathtaking scenery we're sure to see, but especially this part of it. It really is going to be special. :)

The map is great, AdmireUS!

What a special experience, to stay with a local family and to trek in their beautiful homeland. The visit has loads of variety planned.

Exactly Dman. I certainly don't think that everything that Continental and Scandinavian royalty do should be replicated by the BRF. However I do believe that transparency is so important nowadays and royals like the Spanish and Swedish get it. This private stuff should be documented.

PS Harry is back to the beloved blue suit I see!

Well done, you have solved the mystery of the blue suit jacket TLLK (a piece of clothing that by this time could attend meetings and engagements by itself!)
However, I am not so sure about the suit pants. William prefers his suit trousers to be a bit on the tighter side (and a tad shorter in the leg) than Harry, who has stayed with the oversize look since his mid-teens. Therefore there must be two pairs of trousers belonging to the infamous blue suit rattling about somewhere; his pair is probably reposing on Harry's bedroom floor as we post!

This little country needs all the help from the International community it can get with its ancient temples and infrastructure damaged and few tourists arriving. Hopefully Harry's visit will give them some publicity, encourage tourism. It's great to see Harry interacting with the local people, smiling and joking about his socks when he took his shoes off to enter a temple, and his woodcarving skills. He really is a natural!

Kensignton Palace released favorite pictures from Prince Harry in Nepal. He has provided captions in his own words.
The pictures were taken at Leorani village where he stayed the night with a local family

"Found a friend surveying his kingdom! Who can blame him - what a view! He barked ALL night outside our homestay and kept me awake, but we moved past that!"

Prince Harry said: "Living in such dramatic scenery clearly has an effect on the Nepalese - such calm, friendly people and so much love to give. Note to self - visit again!"

This was the view from the helicopter as Prince Harry flew over the mountains and remote villages on the way to the start of his trek to the Gurkha homestay in Leorani village. The video was taken by Prince Harry
