How To Write Your Own Nepal Trekking Stories

We, the Icicles adventure team have been organizing various treks, tours, and adventures all over the foothills of the Himalayas and tried to share our travel experiences, tips, necessary pieces of information on our blog. The concept of writing down the blog articles didn’t come just like that, we believed that the best way to connect with potential travelers is through articles, answering their queries and sharing, journaling writing stories about Nepal trekking destinations, festivals, events, and others.

Every time we organize any trip into Himalayan country Nepal, we get an opportunity to learn new thing, and one of our professional trekking guide Krishna put a glue stick on his backpack. I wondered why he put that in that time, but later he came up with so beautifully decorated travel book that truly exhibits the raw highlights of trekking destinations.

It was not a long ago when he returned from Everest base camp trek, with a book which included the boarding pass, Lukla -KTM plane ticket, copies of TIMS cards, hotel and restaurant bills, visiting cards of local lodges, and short stories of each day that described what exactly happened that day in few points. The glue book or his storybook was interesting to see and he also says that it takes him back to those days while reading days and months later.

So, actually in this article, here we would like to share with you that how this sticking-on book and later on writing about them can help you write your own Nepal trekking stories. Yup, it is not rocket science after all! You simply need a tape or glue stick and we are pretty sure, it will be the best thing you will do while you are and after your trek.

What things to glue on your storybook?

  • Boarding passes and plane/bus tickets
  • TIMS card
  • National park and conservation area entrance tickets
  • Hotels and lodges bills, visiting cards
  • Business cards of people you meet along the route
  • Map cuttings and photographs
  • Itinerary note
  • Postcards of that host trekking site
  • And any other thing that you can stick on your storybook.

Doing these things might seem to be a kind of awkward and hectic task for the first time while you finally reach your tea house at the end and open your storybook with glue sticks; however, it is not that daunting and your every effort is worth it. People surrounding you might respect your single time at the dining hall, while our guide Krishna says that it is always better to have a conversation, warm coffee, and share travel stories from past and present.

It is for sure that you will cherish those adventurous memories glued on your storybook, and it also helps travel back to a time when you see those stickers. Your plane flight to Lukla after seeing your boarding pass, beautiful Himalayan views after seeing the postcard. It helps you remember most of those wonderful trekking memories that you had on the foothills of the Nepal Himalayas. And it is a truly awesome feeling. Now we hope that you carry the glue stick and notebook before embarking on awesome trek routes!
