Before the end of the day there would be tears, tantrums and triumph, but how did we get to this point?
Decisions, decisions, decisions…
Regions such as Annapurna have a variety of hikes on offer, from a 3 week adventure completing the entire Annapurna Circuit, 1 week summits to Annapurna Base Camp and 5 day expeditions to Poon Hill. Add to that the Mustang and Langtang regions and the choices are almost endless.
For those willing to explore further than the Everest region, you will find equally stunning scenery and friendly locals but potentially share it with fewer hikers.
We opted for the Annapurna Circuit, drawn by the Thorong La Pass, and the chance to go to an even higher altitude than that of Everest Base Camp.
