Day 563-579: Pokhara + ABC trek

Taking a boat across the lake for the hike up to Peace Pagoda

Peace Pagoda


Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Day 1 Naya Pol to Tikhe Dhunga

Perfect time to read


Day 2 to Ghorepani



Daily dosage of Dhal bhat... because you can top up without additional cost


Day 3 to Tadapani




Nice view to wake up to from the room


Day 4 to Sinuwa

Some Malaysians' good deed

Air quality of the room wasn't great because of our sweaty smelly clothes


Day 5 to Deurali


Day 6 to Annapurna Base Camp

Arrived at midday but with no view, was cold and foggy

At the base camp

Keeping warm in the guesthouse at base camp


Day 7 to Dovan

@ 0700hrs thick fog.. worrying that there will be no views

With a little patience... the sky slowing cleared up... not for long though

The spectacular view


Day 8 to Jhinu

 Walking back down and then up to the top far end of photo

 Even chickens got to be carried up

 Thousands of steps up... can you see

 The 'famous' brownie / chocolate cake

 o-la-la... haven't showered since the start of trek because I refused to pay to shower hehe...

 nevermind that its raining... so good to soak here after the trek


Day 9 back to Naya Pol and Pokhara

Granny making straw mat

On the local bus back to Pokhara

Happy trekkers on the roof top... the fun way to ride on Nepal's local bus
