Nov 11, 2013 - ABC Trek Day 7 - MBC to ABC

A leisurely morning before our final push. No washing up though, the water lines were all frozen so we had to make do with wet wipes! Our destination was a short 3km walk with only 500m of elevation gain but it still took us 2 hours as we struggled to breath at 4100m. But we made it to Annapurna Base Camp! And what a spectacular place, absolutely incredible. Lakpa was right, when it rained on us a couple of days ago it was snowing here so there is a blanket of snow covering the ground which only adds to the beauty. We checked out our rooms...

Dec 20, 2008 - Annapurna circuit trek

This was certainly, at times, one of the toughest experiences...

Le ton est donne des le premier jour. Mon sac est trop lourd et sur les 6h00 de marche, 5h00 sont rien que du crapauttage a la verticale.

Le deuxieme jour est que souffrance, nous sommes dans une vallee et devons descendre...

May 18, 2006 - 300 km (and 300 photos) to see a terrorist

300 km. More than 300 km really if you include all the acclimatization hikes. That's got to be from Vancouver to Kamloops or something. When it's a long story, sometimes it's better to start at the end rather than the beginning. I was sitting in the very back corner of the local bus from Naya Pul back to Pokhara; the corner is right beside the open back door where you can watch the cliffs go by beneath your feet, wondering if you might slip right out the door and into oblivion. Beside me was Kristine, sitting and smiling with a young Nepali...
