Travel Annapurna, Nepal

Trekking expedition in the Himalayas

March 30th, 2010

My trip to Nepal must have been one of my bigger adventures and definitely an experience I will never forget. I went to Nepal to participate in an organized trekking around the Anapurna, a series of peaks in the Himalayas.

After two stops in Kuweit City and New Delhi I arrived in Katmandu where I decided to stay for a week to get everything in order for the expedition. I also needed to find a Sherpa, a Nepalese guide to help me during my journey.

In total I would stay in Nepal for 40 days, enough to complete the expedition and enjoy the rich Nepalese landscapes. After one week in Katmandu the day of the trekking had finally arrived.

We left around 5.am by bus and headed for Pokhara, one of the biggest cities in the country, where we arrived after being on the road for seven hours. In Pokhara the people were assigned to their tasks and all the trekking gear was being prepared.

Two land rovers picked us up to bring us to a mountain villages where we would spend the night in a lodge. The next morning the trekking started and our first goal was to reach the base camp located at 18.000 feet and build inside one of the monasteries.

From this point you'll have some amazing and breath taking panoramic views which you won't see anywhere else! You can see mountain peeks above you at 26.247 feet, simply jaw drapping!

Travel Review

Liked: The stunning nature, open spaces and a breath taking landscape with outstanding views of the Himalaya mountain peeks.
Disliked: Nepal is still a very poor country and its people is desperate for a better life. There are a lot of problems like the ungoing desforestation which is a result of people cutting off trees for their own survival but without the existence of a reforestation programme with drastic conseguences for the surrounding landscape.
Trip Rating: Excellent
