A lot of snow fall at Annapurna Base Camp on the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek in March 2018 made for even more spectacular mountain amphitheatre scenery.
Nepal is a beautiful country, but like any country not everywhere is just so. Here are some suggested and rather varied places we think you'll find interesting. A mix of the "usual suspects" as well as "off the beaten path"....
The Annapurna Base Camp Trek and Annapurna Sanctuary Trek are different names for what is actually the same thing! Whilst there is only one final approach to Annapurna Base Camp beyond Chhomrong village, there in fact a few different ways of starting and finishing this particular trek. Including a slight detour to the classic Himalayan view point of Poon Hill (which is what we've done with this video)
Many treks feature accommodation in trekking lodges….called teahouses historically in Nepal.About 85% of people who go trekking in Nepal are undertaking a tea house trek. What are they like?
Today (March 1st 2018) is Holi Festival in Nepal. It's a real fun and colourful affair.....anyway, just enjoy this short video we took in Bandipur today of some of the locals enjoying themselves.
One of the toughest Himalayan circuit treks and one that feels more like an expedition than "just a trek". The Dhaulagiri Circuit is serious and committed undertaking with a number of very tough trekking days at high altitude. The realm of the experienced trekker only. A journey into a true Himalayan wilderness that goes beyond the definition of spectacular. Still in this "Moving Pictures" Video you can do the whole thing in just 2 minutes!
The magnificent Manalsu Circuit Trek in under three minutes....complete with an atmospheric soundtrack from Pink Floyd-"Obscured by Clouds".
