Annapurna: the best trek in the world

Annapurna: the best trek in the world

It is without a doubt the best trek in the long distance category. Nepal is a good mix of pristine nature and rich culture. The terrain and its beautiful landscapes are constantly changing and fill my eyes with tears of joy. The thrill and excitement that cover the air cannot be justified by mere words.

This time we didn’t necessarily want a sense of achievement an exciting and yet challenging walk into the wild corners of nature was more than enough. An 18 day trek was sadly not enough  [...]

A scene right out of the movie “free whilly” played in my mind as I could hear the characteristic blow of the orcas through the mist and I felt they were nearby. The mornings here in this winter land can be calm and yes, cold to the bone. Sunlight is blanked out by the mist and the beams make it through sometime. The silence and peace can be calming but deafening. An eagle flying solo makes itself heard through its piercing cry as it dives in for the fish. It feels divine kayaking with my loyal companion, my heart beat as it goes on a rampage when a sound breaks the quite air. Then all of a sudden  [...]
