Annapurna Circuit Trek

Thorung La

Just to reassure everyone checking that we are safe in Kathmandu right now. We had an amazing 23 days in the Annapurna region, going over the Thorung La Pass two weeks ago, and completing our trek on the 9th Oct. We were on our way between Pokhara and Kathmandu when the cyclone hit, well away from the dangerous areas.

The trek was an amazing experience for us, something still fresh in our minds, and it’s just so sad to be able to picture the locations where so many people have died as a result of the blizzard and avalanches. I am in the process of sorting through our photos of the trek, but struggling to write much about it in light of the current news. Perhaps next week it will be a bit easier.
