Apr 15, 2009 - Annapurna Circuit Trek

We headed to the mountains to do one of Nepal's classic treks: the Annapurna Circuit. This hike takes anywhere from 2-3 weeks (we took 23 days) and Christy was fond of referring to it as "Boot Camp with a View". The trail meanders over 120 miles up and down valleys and mountains and through villages to enable you to circumnavigate the massive Annapurna mountains. The lowest elevation on our trip was 3510 feet, the highest was the Thorang La pass at 17,768 feet, reported to be the highest mountain pass in the world. Lots of ups and downs....

Nov 2, 2006 - A summary of my trek...

I'm back, and I'm alive! I wanted to write an overall summary of the trek rather than churning out 18 separate journal entries.

Let me start off by saying that this was one of the most amazing experiences of my lifetime. It wasn't just traveling to a third world country in political turmoil,...

So, by the light provided by the stars above and fireflys at our side, we made it to the town of Bhulbhule.

Nov 27, 2004 - The trek - the real update

The trek was fantastic. We had a few days in Kathmandu before the trek started, giving us enough time to do some last minute shopping for our trekking gear. Kathmandu is nothing special and is just like most other busy asian cities. It reminds us a bit of Kuta in Bali where there are plenty of taxi's beeping their horns and plenty of little shops trying to sell you souvineers for 'special price'. Ian was very glad to leave the Kat - he was chased back to the sanctuary of the hotel and spent most of his time either lying on the bed or...
