The third episode of the SOLO WOMAN TRAVEL CHALLENGE is up on YouTube and it makes for a watch. This episode follows Prasuna Dangol as she explored Upper Dolpa by herself over three weeks in August – September 2017. I cannot imagine how it feels to walk alone for hours not fully knowing whether you are on the right path that too in a region as remote as Upper Dolpa. Now that definitely requires a lot of positive mental attitude. The moment when Prasuna breaks down, not knowing which path to take really emphasised for me how solo travelling can be pretty challenging! Thankfully she was a tough cookie and managed to weave herself out of it.
