Nepali stone steps in Norway
Last updated: 30.07.2014 //
Nepalis are building new stone steps along the famous hiking trail to the top of Gaustadtoppen in Norway.
For many years, Nepalis have been invited to Norway to help build stone steps along some of Norway's many spectacular hiking routes.
Nepali expertice highly appreciated
The Nepalis are needed because there are hardly any Norwegians who have the traditional expertise of moving and laying big stone slabs by hand. In the recent edition of the Nepali Times you can read an article about the Nepalis working on the hiking route up to Gaustadtoppen, a three hours drive from Oslo.
