Annapurna Circuit, Nepal

November 21, 2012

Herschel Supply Well Travelled

Adventure with us to Nepal, a Himalayan country amidst two Asian giants – India and China. Despite the country’s small size in comparison to its neighbours, Nepal has eight of the worlds’ ten tallest mountains with Everest being the highest point on earth (8,848m). The photos you see below were taken by Duncan Anderson on a thirteen-day trek through the Annapurna circuit, reaching a summit of approx. 5,700 meters. Guided by  unsung mountaineering heroes, the Sherpa’s offered their support, wisdom, and kindness throughout the endeavour. Pack your bags and do not look back. Take a moment to enjoy Duncan Anderson’s words and images below:

To give some perspective to North Americans, the  summit of Whistler, BC,  is a mere 1560m in comparison.

Weathered over time, creating an extraordinary site

Relax, meditate or just appreciate the design in the buddhist temples.

Watch your step.

Steady rapid rivers flow.

We made it!

Roaming in the fields

The ever-changing landscapes… One moment you’re in the snow, the next you’re in a desert.

Get educated.

Traditional Nepali food – this dish is called dal bhat

These long haired beasts known as yaks are very common within the Himalayan region.
