Continually voted one of the top treks in the entire world, the Annapurna region of Nepal is not only stunningly beautiful for its mountains, but also for its rich cultural history of Tibetan Buddhism. The mountain Annapurna I was the first ever 8,000 meter peak climbed; back in 1950 by Maurice Herzog.
Halfway through the Annapurna Circuit, where all of our focus goes towards safely and successfully making it over Thorong-La Pass (5416 meters or 17,769 feet), the highest point and crux of our entire trek.
Our final descent through the holy city of Muktinath, up the world-renowned Poon Hill, and back to Pokhara to complete our full circuit of the Annapurna Trek.
An eye-opening trek through the most damaged villages of the April 2015 Nepal earthquake. This is my personal account of the families and communities who are rebuilding their lives in the entire Langtang region, and how international tourists can help.
Dad and I embark on the most challenging trek in the Everest region of Nepal, completing three high passes over 17,500 ft. over the course of 20 days.
This is the highest elevation portion of our trek, guiding us through alpine lakes, mountains, and villages untouched by modernization. During this portion of our Nepal trek, we wouldn’t descend below the altitude of the highpoint of the lower U.S. states (14,505 ft.) for over a week.
Winding down the final part of our grueling Khumbu Valley trek in Gokyo and over the final of our three passes, Renjo-La.
Up close and personal with the highest altitude I’ve ever reached. Island Peak gives trekkers and climbers a great taste as to what it takes to summit the tallest Himalayan Peaks.
