After nearly 24 hours of travelling, Chelmsford and District Explorer Scouts have finally arrived in Kathmandu at the start of a three week visit to Nepal on a journey which took them via Bahrain.

44 Scouts travelling together has caused a lot of interest, with people reading the back of our t-shirts before asking about their travel plans and chatting about Nepal and Scouting in general.

Tired and hungry, the group received a very warm welcome at their hotel and most headed to bed for an early night, before a day of sightseeing tomorrow.
