The city of Kathmandu is a ceaseless frenzy of chattering vendors, garish signs, pagoda-like temples, and the overpowering smell of incense. The surrounding hills, however, tell a different story.

 Quality! I am going there next April on my bike, hopefully I don't feast every night on Yak testicles or get violated by a Yeti.

 Seriously good edit. It is awesome to see an edit from such a different place featuring a local rider, it makes it that much cooler. If I ever have the time and money, I'm definitely going to leave Kansas for more vertically oriented locales.
