View from Annapurna One Base Camp

Trekking this fantastic mountain range is the highlight of anyone’s travel bucket list and some of the challennges and vistas you will encounter are life defining. It should not be underestimated the scale and difficulty of some of the areas that you will encounter. It can be done with the right planning and preparation. I was told that with the right guide a 90 year old can safely trek this part of Nepal and often I witnessed retired couples traveling these parts of the world.


My guide was “Giri” (Dev Raj Giri) who worked with Himalayan Glacier Trekking Ltd http://www.himalayanglacier.com. I highly recommend this company for value and quality.¬†Giri was unbelievably experienced and professional and made this the trip of a lifetime.

DSC00466The trek took approximately 8 days and there were so many moments and challenges throughout not to mention lots of laughter and silliness. I bonded quickly with my travel companions who joined me from around the world and booked the same trek as I did. We met on day one for the first time and came out of the mountains the best of friends.
