Chilaunepani and Tibet Border

November 26, 2013 we went on our first trip out of Kathmandu Valley.  We went to a water project near Chilaunepani. We saw beautiful green fields and terraces and mountains.  We went on bumpy steep roads in a jeep. We went up the mountain and saw two water tanks, then went down to the bottom to the water source. It was a great adventure.  The Mendenhalls went with us. Afterwards we kept going and went to the Tibet, China border.
