Stop for lunch

We've been to Nepal in October and did the Annapurna Circuit and the Sanctuary Trek. A fantastic, life changing (if I may be so cliche) experience! The trek took us 21days and every day was different, concerning nature, views, people, ... Everything. Being back for more than a month now, I start to feel a little nostalgic, so luckily I've got my pictures... all 5000 of them :-)

I selected the best ones (less than 10%) to publish in a book, and I will to the same here. In chronological order, so that everyone who's planning the trek will get a good feeling of the physical as well as the cultural experience and will notice the differences you come across during the trek. And hopefully those that are not planning to go and trek in Nepal might chance there minds, cause it's a great country.

 

Anyway. About this picture...

Kathmandu - Besi Sahar

To start our trek we took a jeep from Kathmandu to Besi Sahar, the famous starting point of the Annapurna Circuit. I took us about 7 ours to get there, but it was great. The things you see on the way. People living there lives, next to the road.Lots of little stalls like this one where we took lunch and our first Nepali tea! We were lucky enough to travel during the Dhasain festival, when lots of activity is going on, which I tell you about later on.
