Leeuwenhoek had stolen and peeped into the fantastic sub-visible world of little things, creatures that had lived, had bred, had battled, had died, completely hidden from and unknown to all men from the beginning of time. Beasts these were of a kind that ravaged and annihilated whole races of men ten million times larger than they were themselves. Beings these were, more terrible than fire-spitting dragons or hydra-headed monsters. They were silent assassins that murdered babies in warm cradles and kings in sheltered places. It was this invisible, insignificant, but implacable-and sometimes friendly- world Leeuwenhoek had looked into for the first time of all men of all countries. ~Microbe Hunters

M is for Mount Everest in May, N is for National Parks, O is for Orange Peoke

M is for Mount Everest in May

May is the month which many climbers attempt to summit Mount Everest. It is said to have the least number of days with drastic weather changes and most, if not all, passage ways to the summit are open during the spring. The end of May brings Monsoon season, where the rainy weather forces many bridges and mountain sides to become dangerous.

N is for National Parks

There are many natural preservations in Nepal. Many of these parks require special permits and recognition to hike in, and if you are caught without said documentation, you could be charged. Guide companies know all the required representation for National Parks, so it would be advisable to visit a National Park with their assistance.

O is for Orange Peoke

Orange Peoke is the number one tea which is drank by Nepali people in Nepal. Different harvest times of the tea leaves results in different tastes throughout the year, and because it is native to the area, it is always a great thing to have a cup of fresh tea after a long day's hike.



  1. Sounds wonderful. Nice to meet and connect through atozchallenge. http://aimingforapublishingdeal.blogspot.co.uk/

  2. Hope you catch up, I'm continuing to blog a-z in May so am still enjoying the linky. Long ago hubby and I went to a lecture and met several folks who climb Everett's. The stories and pictures they shared were really cool. We were young then, did lots of backpacking and hiking and used equipment they help to market...by in the day, Jan Sport Equipment.
