The Annapurna Circuit for Soul Healing
I went to Nepal for the second time in my life during the Covid confusion. I visited Nepal in March of this year. I went on my journey alone. Rajesh Gurung, my guide from the Nepal Wilderness Company, introduced me to Mr. Himal two years ago. I usually ask for more climbing options as an insatiable, lifelong hiker. Thus, Mr. Himal organized my trip in detail, granting me, even, the trek to Tilicho Lake, Thorong La Pass, and Mardi Himal.
From Kathmandu, we took a local bus to Bessisahar, then took a jeep to Bahundanda, where we stayed overnight and began our walk the next morning. I take this opportunity to oppose some complaints relating to the replacement of some original and partly damaged pathways. In my opinion this is really, the minority issue in comparison with the natural beauty of the river Marsyangdi, gorgeous landscapes, scenes associating with another world, breathtaking views of the Annapurna range, and ancient cities that stretch along the way as you proceed your way upstream of the river;
To name just a few, Tal, Chame, Pisang, Manang, Muktinath have preserved the atmosphere of sacredness and kindness from some forgotten times in history. On the lower destinations, the weather was pleasant; sunny and warm, and snow-covered, on the Tilicho Lake (4.919 m) and Thorong La Pass (5.416), and almost tropical, on the way to Ghorepani and Ghandruk.
He has already crossed Thorong La Pass seven times in his life. He is familiar with all of the Annapurna region, and with the tea-house management staff, so that even during these times of possible reductions in transport and lodging, he can still provide quick and effective solutions. I enjoyed his company and his warm personality. His hidden strength, caution, diligence, and care had made me feel safe. I highly recommend his assistance, the advice of Mr. Himal, and the services provided by the Nepal Wilderness Company.
