NikonRumorsForum meeting in Mustang, Nepal: October 18-31st, 2015

Adam, one of the moderators of the NikonRumorsForum, is organizing a trip/unofficial NRF meeting in Mustang, Nepal during October 18-31, 2015. Here are the details (email Adam for additional information):

- Ever wanted to visit one of the most mystical place on Earth?
- Ever wanted to spend 14 days that will change your perception of life?
- Ever wanted to see the highest mountains on Earth?

Together with my friend Gokul from Real Himalaya I've worked for the last couple days to give you an opportunity to visit Nepal, one of the most incredible countries in Asia. In the 14 days you will see not only the icons of Nepal - Kathmandu and Pokhra but also the most spectacular and secluded place Nepal can offer to tourists - Kingdom of Lo | Mustang. Opened for tourists in 1992 is still one of the least explored regions in Nepal, mostly due to extremely high permit fees and poor connectivity with the rest part of the country. It's also one of the last places on earth to feel the true Tibetan culture.
