Manaslu Trek

The Manaslu Circuit Trek is ideal for experienced trekkers who may have just ‘ticked off’ the Everest and Annapurna areas and wish to visit another piece of Nepal. This trek removes you from the group appropriate around the north side of Manaslu. We get to the Manaslu territory through a long jeep drive from Kathmandu which takes us to Arughat, a bustling bazaar in the core of Nepal. The trek takes us from the core of the marshes high up to cross the 5135m Larkya La and down to the Marsyandi valley, joining the course of the much more famous Annapurna Circuit for the most recent day. read more

Memorial to poet Jan Skácel

Memorial to poet Jan Skácel
An unusual sculpture stands on the slope of the Špilberk park in Brno, Czechia. More than two meter high, the face of poet Jan Skácel is looking down at the ancient centre of the city in which he lived and worked. The visitor can look in the same direction as if through the poet´s eyes because the sculpture consists of several thousand hollow steel pipes welded together horizontally.
