News, Nepal EVECHESS 2024 team

Greetings from exciting Kathmandu!

Today was an amazing day!  In the morning, the rest of the team arrived and immediately after the flight joined a tour of Kathmandu with the incendiary Elena Trishankova. The tour took place in the top places. We started from the royal Durbar Square, where we reviewed all the carvings on temples depicting scenes of the Kama Sutra and not only, received a blessing from the living goddess Kumari.  

At the Swayambunath Monkey Temple, we made a bark around an ancient stupa, admired the views of Kathmandu from the top of the hill and purchased the most sonorous and clear-sounding singing bowls from a local master.

At the Buddhist stupa, Boudinath received a blessing from local monks (its will be useful to us now), found their place in the wheel of samsara, relaxed on the roof with beer and a breeze, went to the tank painting school.

Instead of 4-5 hours, it turned out to be 7! And it could have been even more if it hadn't been for the international chess tournament, in which our team is represented on the Russian side.

The tournament was exciting. All the fans were sweating and rooting for ours. There was a live broadcast. There were 5 rounds, everyone played with everyone. The score is 4:1 in favor of the Nepalese team.

After the match, a welcome dinner was held in the almost throne room. And after dinner, those who did not have enough of the tournament went to play a little more chess. Tomorrow we have a "fly to Lukla" quest and the first day of trekking!

Your guides are Valery Myasoedov, Andrey Berezin, Anastasia Kuznetsova.
