Trekking in Nepal Nov 03, 2011
Nepal is a landlocked country in Southern Asia, between China and India. It's a land of yaks and yetis, Stupas and Sherpas, the best trekking on earth and backpackers Disneyland. With stunning scenery, the summit of the highest peak on the planet, Snowy Mountain passes and glaciers, glorious mountain landscapes and remote ruins and villages, leading down to steamy jungle packed with wildlife.

So I did the Annapurna Sanctuary walk in Nepal from Pokhara around the inside of the Annapurna mountains for 8 days back in 2000. It was the best experience and I would go back if I had the chance.WE hired a guide in Kathmandu from the First Trekking Company who was fantastic - spoke English which many didn't. The three of us just hired his services and not the whole camp and bag carrier which some people get so it wasn't that expensive. His brother came along who sometimes offered to carry our bags when we had a long day walk but mainly we did it ourselves which was fine.

The walk is spectacular. You stop on the way along all the villages for lunch then settle down in the lodges each evening with the other travelers. Some are very small and rural places, tucked away in the mountains so you feel quite isolated. But get close to the Annapurna base camp and you hit what they call the "Apple Pie Trail" as you can stop at some huts for pizza, spring rolls and apple pie to suit all the European travelers. Things are a bit harder now with many Maoist rebels approaching walkers for money and valuables but we had no trouble in the whole month we traveled around Nepal.
