HEADLINE

Sat 14th Dec 2019 – Flight from London to Kathmandu via Doha – The adventure begins!

Nepal here we come…..proper Mountains!

After finding such enjoyment hiking in the hills of the UK this is a record of our first venture to the world’s only place for mountains…..the Himalayas. Our trip to the Annapurna Massif in Nepal was booked and superbly arranged by Audley Travel, thanks to Sophie for fine tuning everything for us.

I found the Maps.me app for iPhone and thought I’d give it a try after having much success using GPS with the Ordnance Survey app on iPhone in the UK.

Bob Gibbons book Trekking Annapurna: 14 Treks including the Annapurna Circuit and Sanctuary

Bob Gibbons passion for this area of the world has certainly inspired us to visit here and hopefully come back again and again much like himself.

Tristan Higbee’s book A Solo Trek of Nepal’s Annapurna Circuit in Winter

I have only just started reading this book but even the title sounds inspirational. We are not doing the whole circuit but reading about someone else’s love of the Annapurna region just confirmed to us that we are going to the right place.
