Annapurna Circuit Trek / Nepal October 2013

Let me share with you a few pictures from my recent trekking tour in Nepal. The particular charm of the ten-day Annapurna Circuit trek is that it leads through several levels of vegetation starting from sub-tropic valleys till the glacier region. It is a “teahouse trek” where you can rely on a well-functioning infrastructure of guesthouses which provide you accommodation, food, hot shower and internet access along the whole route. On the other hand: do not expect mountain solitude. For your convenience it is recommended to take a porter/guide to carry your language.
