Today we reached Annapurna Base Camp. It is situated at 4,130 meters above sea level amidst numerous peaks of 6,000+ meters height – a truly breathtaking sight!
I am currently on a ten-day hike in Nepal. The first part of this hike is a classical “teahouse trek” (i.e. hiking from one tea/guest house to the next). We have been hiking through rhododendron forest and enjoyed the views of the surrounding mountains, e.g. from Poon Hill, a popular vantage point.
