Kumar Karakheti, a Fort Collins resident and native of Nepal, will present Nepal and Himalayan Adventures at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 11, at the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures. The presentation is part of the museum’s Global Adventures gatherings.
“I come from a small village in Nepal, and I have lived in Fort Collins since 2007,” says Karakheti, owner and lead trekking guide for Journeys, LLC. “My company specializes in custom expeditions in the Himalayas, where I have trekked 65 times to Everest Base Camp.”
Karakheti will also review his country’s history, culture and people. The museum’s gift shop will have items for purchase from Nepal, including blankets made from the wool of yaks, woolen hats and gloves, scarves and singing bowls.
