The High Pass: Trekking the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal

The Annapurna Circuit is a trek in central Nepal that climbs to an altitude of 5,400m through Thorung La pass, one of the highest trekking passes in the world, below peaks that rise 6000-8000m in elevation from the Annapurna Range. We attempted to complete the trek in about 15 days starting mid-December of 2013, when the shoulder season promised much smaller crowds but with it a risk of deep snow that early winter can bring to the Pass.

The Himalaya Expedition

A team of german scientist went on an expedition to Nepal to explore the himalaya mountains. Their research began in the tibetan part of Nepal. Climbing the rough countryside of the himalaya mountains was an exceptional adventure for the expedition team. With the next adventure in sight, another expedition to Nepal is planned for October 2014, this time skiing through the himalaya.
