Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp, Pt. 4

Part One, Part Two, Part Three

On the 27th of April, a group comprised of myself, my girlfriend, her parents, and her cousin, set out walking through the Himalayas to reach Annapurna Base Camp (south). Walking up to 4,130 meters above sea level and back down again took eight days, with an average of six hours of walking each day through vast, sprawling valleys, dense forests, and, of course, gigantic, beautiful mountains.

As I wasn’t around to write any content for the blog, I compiled these photos for your viewing pleasure. I hope you enjoy this four-part series, which I will roll out over the next few days.

Some of these photos were taken by me, and some (the better ones) were generously offered by Sara Savino for me to use. Her Flickr, containing some breathtaking photos, can be found here.

The third part of this series shows the last two days of the trek, which went from:

Sinuwa (2360m)
-> Chhomrong (2170m)
-> Jhinudanda (1780m)
and
Jhinudanda (1780m)
-> New Bridge (1340m)
-> Kilyu (1390m)
-> Pokhara (826m)

Thus concludes the trek to Annapurna Base Camp. I hope you enjoyed the series. I wasn’t able to think of captions quite as good as the Pokhara series simply because of the nature of a trek. It’s a lot of walking. There isn’t much to say other than the views are stunning, having so much time in your own head is definitely a good thing, and living in ‘survival’ mode for a few days is character building. While I absolutely loved this trek, I think I’m all trekked out for now. I’m going to spend my last few months in Kathmandu relaxing and working on this blog. We will return to normal on Wednesday with an artist highlight on Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip. Until then, you can join me on Facebook and Twitter. The links are to the right. Enjoy!
