My son and I contacted Rajan of Earthbound Expeditions to help us put together a short trek up to the Annapurna Sanctuary. It was an amazing experience, and I hope you will consider it too if you are reading this. The villages and views along this route are like stepping back in time. The views of the three peaks of Annapurna were so magnificent, but equally amazing was walking along acient stone steps used by villagers who have lived here in this high mountains for centuries. We saw people plowing with water buffaloo, local brew being made, old women in colorful skirts and hand-embrodiered tops wearing beautiful beaded necklaces carrying heavy loads in baskets on top of their hears, and barefoot! We sat in the morning watching the sun turn the tops of Annapurna pink, and drank hot tea and ate momo's in a Tibetan teahouse at night. You can't help but feel special to be given this opportunity to visit this remote corner of the world, and Earthbound did a superb job in supplying us with a great guide, Narendra Timalsina, and a good route for us to take. I look forwrd to doing it again-I hope soon-and this time maybe go farther. I will aslo add that the rigors of the uphill climbing is quite a test of physical endurance if you are not used to backpacking-I'd advise you get in shape and you'll enjoy the trekking so much more!! Best of luck to all going to the mysterious and ancient Kathmandu--you will have a Friend in Rajan and Earthbound Exped.! when my luggage didn't show up right away, he was so helpful in assisting me with trying to locate my bags. It's good to have a friend in this part of the world, you can't go wrong with Rajan!
