April 28: Kathmandu to Annapurna Conservation Area

NEPAL | Thursday, 28 April 2011 | Views [895] | Comments [4]

The day after landing in Kathmandu I was off to Pokhara (NW of Kathmandu). This is the starting point of trekking in the Annapurna Conservation Area. From Pokhara we took a car 1.5 hours and then trekked for roughly 5 hours to our guesthouse. This, I was told, was a warm up for the hard day to come. The hard day to come was no joke. My guide said that we walked up 3600 steps (stones put down by locals) by noon and after that we trekked for another 4 hours. Overall, we ascended over 1000 meters in a single day. The views are hard to describe and amazing doesn't seem to be enough. I have more to report but the connection here is not great and I can not upload any pictures where I am, so stay tuned. I am headed back to Bangkok tomorrow and I will have access to better computers/internet, therefore I will try to get some more stories as well as pictures posted within the next couple of days. Hope everyone is well.

Shane,
I'm so glad you decided to do the mountain treking! You were talking about that before you left. And I'm glad it did not disappoint! Looking forward to the pictures even though you said they were not as spectacular as the view with the naked eye.
Luv ya! Mom
