Asia » Nepal » Annapurna » Annapurna Base Camp August 30th 2020

Annapurna South The word Annapurna is actually derived from Sanskrit meaning the provider of food and nourishment. Anna means "food" or "grains" and Purna means "full, complete and perfect". Annapurna is also the name of a very popular Hindu goddess; the goddess of nourishment. In Nepal, Annapurna is a group of mountains in the Himalayas which connected to each other and form a mountain range independent of other mountain range. In geographical term, we call the Annapurna mountain range as Annapurna massif. The Annapurna massif is 55 km (34 miles) long with the highest point being Annapurna I. It contains six major peaks over 7,200 m namely Annapurna I (8,091 m, 10th highest mountain in the world), Annapurna II (7,937 m), Annapurna III (7,555 m), Annapurna IV (7,525 m), Gangapurna (... read more

Asia » Nepal » Himalayas August 11th 2020

Kanchenjunga is the second highest mountain in Nepal and the third highest in the world, which is located in the far east of Nepal. Two base camps have been set up north and south of Kanchenjunga. The trek falls within the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area, the longest trekking in Nepal (excluding the Great Himalayan Trail). Most of the tourists initially visit the northern base camp and head towards the southern base camp. As it takes more than 3 weeks to trek, only a few tourists reach there. Due to geographical remoteness and low tourist arrivals, the area is still completely isolated from outside influences. The locals have to come to the district headquarter Phung Ling Bazar to buy all the necessary goods. It takes about a week for the residents of the upper region. The main occupation ... read more

Kalinchok is a sacred religious site for the locals. Especially on full moon day of August, every year there is a wonderful gathering of devotees. So we 3 friends also decided to go at the time of the fair. One day before the fair, we took a bus from Kathmandu to Charikot via Araniko Highway and then started trekking to Kalinchok hill. We slowly climbed up, meeting many pilgrims one after another on the way. Although we didn't have enough time, we ate eggs and noodles soup at Deurali. There were no villages after Deurali, just dense forest along the way. But along the way, there were other pilgrims and visitors, so some were singing and some were shouting. It was a kind of fun. Because of rainy season, as usual it was quite foggy, the ... read more

Asia » Nepal » Annapurna » Annapurna Base Camp April 5th 2020

The hiking trip to Nepal was planned when Ng Kui Lai (NKL) took up a temporary teaching post with the Himalayan English School (HES) for about three months. He invited a few friends to join him in a hike to Annapurna base camp (ABC) towards the end of his teaching assignment. Five of us comprising our Aseanpre-university scholar friends and a friend of NKL from Kuala Lumpur, Aaron Yap, happily jumped at the opportunity. A friend of NKL from China by the nickname of Sky, could not make it due to the travel restrictions arising from the Covid19 coronavirus epidemic. The situation was evolving almost daily with unofficial announcement of the cancellation of visa-on-arrival on 7 March 2020 and then officially on 10 March 2020. Sky didn’t want to take the risk and cancelled his flight ... read more

It was a bit bigger group 24 pax from Ipoh, Malaysia. I was also excited to do one of the challenging trek with a bigger group. Trek began smoothly with awesome scenery & nice weather. As usual the more climbed up, the more challenging. Fortunately all of them reached to Gokyo 4800m despite the some of them got a bit sick. More surprisingly one of the members, who had summited Stock Kangri 6100m in Ladak India few months ago, quite suffered by AMS at Gokyo. It was a bit unexpected me too though AMS can suffer anybody anytime. Some others also felt weak after climbing Gokyo Ri 5360m due to tiredness & stomach problem ( diarrhea). So almost half of them got down to Namche bazar and rest continued trek with me. Because of regular ... read more

It was long days trek with a Belgian and two Malaysian friends. We took a public bus from kathmandu to Arughat. In spite of the dusty & bumpy road bus was full packed. There is no space for a foot to step in. First day we stayed at Arughat. It is local market centre in that area. Since next day our trek was begun. We followed the left hand side of “Budi-gandaki” river, which was also old trade route to Tibet. There were beautiful rural valleys at both sides of Budi-gandaki. Ganesh himalaya range could see on horizon. It was time of Deepawali festival, the Hindu's festival of lights & color. All houses had been decorated with marigold flowers and color paintings. Peoples were celebrating the festival in their house gathering at each other. We crossed ... read more

“Gokyo lake trek” = 2010.03.15 – 2010.03.27 http://www.facebook.com/sanam.sherpa - for more photos. Group was from Penang Adventure Club under Mr. Wong’s leadership. And I was a bit worried about the weather. Luckily we flew to Lukla at exact time. It was very adventurous flight. During the flight we saw only huge bundle of clouds over the sky. Our captain looked very alert to bypass those bundle of clouds. Finally aircraft took very high altitude to cross the Pike hill and horribly drop down to land at Lukla. Our porters were waiting us at Lukla where we had breakfast together and we headed to Phakding. Weather was cool and a bit cloudy. Though it was early of spring season, there were many tourists on the way. Second day we headed to Namche bazar from Phakding. Trail was ... read more

“Tamang heritage trek” in Nepal (2012.12.05 - 2012.12.09) Day1, When I hear from other hikers about this trek, I was very curious to go there. After a long curiosity one of my friends and I left for this trek. We caught the bus in Pasang lamu highway until get to Syabrubesi, which is same way to Langtang trek. Bus was full packed. We reached to Syabrubesi around 3 o’clock but decided to go further than that. Though local bus was heading to same direction, we took short – cut trail to there on foot. It was steep up through village. Luckily wedding ceremony was going on there. Men and women were dancing in the group together. I shot some pictures and rushed to catch my friend ahead. We kept climbing up wiping sweat. After climbing up ... read more

"Upper Mustang(Forbidden land) trip" We were 10 persons altogether in the group. Six of us including four French tourists took plane from Kathmandu to Pokhara and rest of the group had already gone there by Bus. Next day our flight was scheduled early in the morning from Pokhara, but had to wait little bit due to bad weather. Finally we flew to Jomsom. We gradually left the cloudy part and became face to face with snow capped mountains. It was really breathtaking scenery from the plane. After 20 minutes, plane landed in Jomsom. The returning passengers were ready to fly down to pokhara. As soon as we get off from the plane, we were unable to take photos in front of high Himalaya. We took single and group pictures in front of Nilgiri Himalaya. Our group ... read more
