Four Waynesville women recount trek through NepalWritten by Admin
Four local women who hiked in Nepal will give a talk at 2 p.m. on Feb. 8. The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the Waynesville Book Club.
Elizabeth Allen, Wendy Bowen, Jane Cole and Marilyn Sullivan joined Cole’s brother, John Vavruska, and seven others on a trek from Kathmandu to Helambu, a region about 60 miles to the north.
The women walked six days to Chupar, staying in teahouses along the way and eating mostly dal bhat, a lentil stew served over rice, with the locals.
The event is free and open to anyone.
