    I couldn’t stop reading about your journey along the Annapurma. It’s one of the treks that I’m interested in doing in Nepal in the future. I loved reading about this day and what a nice surprise to come across wild strawberries along the route. Although the weather wasn’t the great, the views and the greenery looked amazing!

      Looking back, it is such a treasure to have experienced the ups and downs, and how the alternating highs and lows really made me reflect in a way that you seldom get the chance to. Have a look at Day 10 for monsoon trekking tips if you decide to do this trek in future!

    i always got hit a little too close to home whenever i come across an article about trekking or hiking in nepal, because a few years ago a couple of people that i know personally were there to hike and they’ve never come back due to the earthquake. never been found either. i’m so glad that you made it despite the misery you’ve experienced during your journey. safe travel always! :)

      Oh I’m so sorry. Indeed, I’m sure some of the cairn shrines we passed along the way may have commemorated people who died then. Even just the heavy monsoon last year caused parts of the trail to slide away. I’m glad I went with a trekking company in the monsoon.

    oh the constant damp! yes, i remember that feeling so well. What a time to have been in Nepal. The photos are stunning, btw but I totally feel for you on the misery of being constantly uncomfortable whilst trekking. Luckily we quickly forget the hardships and remember mainly the good!
