Online registration ends May 17 for OGS Conference


The OGS Conference has let us know that at the end of the day on May 17, the online registration for the OGS Conference will be closed.

At that point, the OGS Conference committee will be letting the caterers and banquet hall know the amount of food to order.

We’ll reserve a few extra tickets, but the number will definitely be limited. Between May 18 and 24, registrations will be taken by phone, and the office staff will be able to tell you whether there are any food or banquet tickets left.

After May 24, no new advance registrations will be accepted.

Those who aren’t able to plan ahead can still register for the Saturday and Sunday lectures upon arrival at the conference, but will find most of the Friday events sold out, and should be prepared to make other arrangements for food in case there are no tickets left.

The Conference website is at www.ogs.on.ca/conference2013/home

A typical trek-day starts around 6 a.m. with a cup of tea/coffee. After packing your duffel bag and daypack, breakfast is served piping hot amidst the sweet chirping of birds that are always happy with your presence. The day's trek starts around 7.30 a.m. Porters carry all your luggage and equipment. All you need to carry in your daypack are personal items like a water bottle, rain/wind jacket, camera and any other small items you may need on the trail.

On beaten trails or virgin tracks, Nepal is a trekker's haven. The steady beat of foot travel is a great way to discover and make meaningful contact with the country. Trekking usually consists of a series of ascents and descents walking 5 to 7 hours (9 to 14 km per day on average with a guide, cook and porters and on some occasion’s pack animals.

The objective of trekking in Nepal is not just a particular destination, but the odyssey and experiences itself. You travel at a pace that suits your body best, observing nature, rural communities, and spectacular mountain panoramas, some of which are the best on the planet. You also stop over to have a cosy chat with the local folks and learn about their lifestyles on these beautiful but tough mountains, of which some are the highest in the world.

Trekking in Nepal with Encounters Nepal is an experience that leads you into areas most other trek companies would overlook; we go the mile in order to show you some of the most stunning sights beheld on these astonishing mountains that gives you a sense of gratification, the true feelings of adventure in an untamed wilderness that teaches you about life in ways that are more practical than you would experience in the concrete jungles of mega cities.

Nepal Annapurna Base Camp Trek is among the most popular walking tour in the Himalayan world.
The ranges of Annapurna base camp trek is one of the most popular walking tour in the Himalayan world. Trail literally brings you face to face with an eight thousand highest Peak– for a moderate-difficult trek; this is one of best incredible! The fascinating Annapurna ranges massif includes the world’s tenth highest peak in Himalaya. Annapurna (8,091 m) I hold a fatal attraction for mountaineers of world. This mountain has the highest fatality ratio among the eight thou sanders peak. This formidable mountain aura apart, its base camp (ABC) trek holds several treasures for the mountain lover world.
Annapurna Mountain views that leave you spellbound
The Annapurna mountain range whets your appetite for mountain views front-right from Pokhara City. This is first even before you start the trek. At Ghandruk village, you see distinct views of Machapuchare(6993m) Annapurna South (7219m) and Hiunchuli (6441m). Views of different peaks of the world Annapurna massif and Machapuchare stay with you all the way till Sinuwa Hill. The tip of Holy Machapuchare teases you at Dovan (2600m). As you burst out of the bamboo forest past Himalaya and Deurali pass, Machapuchare appears again in its full glory. Machapuchare, the ‘fish tailed mountain’, in Nepalese is revered by the Nepalese people for its exquisite beauty. Legendry believed to be one of the homes of Hindi Lord (Shiva). This holy mountian has never been officially summitted! As you touch down the Machapuchare base camp, in addition to Machapuchare, you can see massif Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Gangapurna and Hiunchuli Peak up close. The Annapurna Base Camp is a small cluster of six-seven lodges opposite the ridge of Annapurna glacier. As you look around up from the edge of the glacier, you come face to face with the Annapurna massif ranges. Annapurna South, I, III and Gangapurna, with Gandharvachuli and Machapuchare are all there to meet your unleash gaze when your eyes rest upon them. Trekking into the forests of the Annapurna Conservation Area The trail takes you through a variety of vegetation while trekking from Ghandruk village to Chhomrong you are surrounded by Nepal's national flower (rhododendron), fern and wild bamboo. Once you cross Sinuwa Hill to enter the narrow valley of Annapurna sanctuary, the forest becomes densely. Tallest oak trees become prominent here. As you move further up towards Deurali pass, the thick forests give way to tall grasses. Around this area, you will find trees of thick bark called Daphne. This is used by local people to make paper. These trees are commonly found around estern part of nepal and india border as well. Closer to Machapuchare base camp (3700m), the terrain turns into Alpine. You see the patches of grass amidst boulders. There are also flowering plants lining the trail at this section too.
The Annapurna base camp trail has 3 sections through forest that is so dense that sometime sunlight barely seeps through. The first one starts right after the villages around Chomrung and extends till New Bridge. On the trail from Sinuwa, you will hear the Modi River roaring past right next to you. But the trees around are so densely that you can’t really see the river flow. The third stretch is after Sinuwa and goes all the way to Dovan via Bamboo. The beauty of this trek is that you walk through these forests twice.
The Annapurna Base Camp Trek and region is nestled in the 7,629 sq km Annapurna Conservation Area and home to 1,228 species of flowering plants, more than 100 mammals, 474 birds, 33 reptiles with 22 amphibians. If you’re lucky you might spot an exotic bird or even called marmot.

Manaslu & Tsum Valley Trekking a perfect combination on off the beaten trails, where western trekkers and adventurer seldom visits or explore this hidden and scenic Tsum valley enclosed within massive Ganesh Himal known as Yangra in Tibetan and Kutang for Manaslu, where the ancient Sanskrit Manas name comes from as ‘spirit of the mountain or soul’ (like the holy Lake Manasarover near Kailash in Tibet).
Mt. Manaslu stands at 8,163 m / 26,781 ft high, as world's 8th highest peak, which was first climbed by Japanese expedition in 1956 by T. Imamishi. K. Kato and M. Higeta with Nepalese Sherpa guide G. Norbu.

Starting this wonderful adventure taking an overland drive towards hills and valley of Gorkha town or from Dhading district which leads you at Arughat, a warm low farm village at present stands as a big town on the shelf of raging Buri-Gandaki River fed feom Mt. Manaslu and Ganesh Himal glaciers.
First heading towards hidden valley of Tsum following the river upstream for few days past nice hill villages of Soti-Khola-Philim-Jagat and Dyang to reach upper valley of Tsum at Mu Gompa which lies close towards the border of Tibet hidden behind massive Ganesh Himal, an interesting spot with dramatic scenery of mountains-hills and valley.
At Tsum valley explore its ancient and interesting monasteries of Mu-Gompa and Chokhan Paro located above 3,700 m high in the shade of giant Himalayan peaks with hike to saint Milarepa holy meditation cave of 11th centaury at Nele includes a visit to Rachen Gompa.
After an exciting and wonderful time on Tsum known as the valley of Happiness, heading towards further North West to join on the trail of Manaslu circuit trek, where the walk leads you on higher Manaslu valley situated upper Gorkha district and then route leads past Lo and Bhi-Gaon villages to reach a large Samagaon village, which is on route to Manaslu base camp and Larkya-La pass.
At Samagaon explore the ancient culture of Manaslu Bhotia tribe of people who have migrated from across the border in Tibet, where the ancient culture of Buddhism religion still practiced with much trade between Tibet and the local villagers of Manaslu Circuit Trek.
After rest day for local hike and acclimatization walks leads past Samdu village to reach at the base of Larkya-La pass known as Phedi or bottom, this spot also called as Dharmasala or Larkya Bazaar, where in early days huge trade and market used to take place.
