Trekking in the Annapurnas

We spent five days trekking (a glorified word for hiking) in the Annapurna range of the Himalayas. We had incredible weather, the views were breath-taking and we had a great time. Unfortunately, Marieke suffered from some very bad food poisoning for two days, but who can think of a better place to rest and recupperate than in a tiny 'resort' town in the Himalayas.

The path led between small farming villages, past incredible terraced cropland cut into the hillsides, across rivers, through rhododendron forests and always with jaw-dropping views of the mountains. We'll let photos tell the rest of the story...
