The hunger for firewood to feed trekkers, keep them warm, and these days to provide hot showers. We can’t keep taking this for granted. Perhaps the wisdom of the Pakha Sukjai village leaders is needed here (see post from 20 February, 2007, “Lena’s 18th birthday”) with trekkers required to plant a tree for every day they are in Nepal. I don’t just mean giving money for tree planting, I mean being required to pay for and plant trees in the local communities that they trek through.
