    Outer Bhraka - Annapurna Day 4 (End)

    October 23, 2015 in Nepal

    (3439m) The second half of day four was almost as scenic as its first few hours. It began with a quick meeting of musician Ben Hammond at lunch (see spotify) and Julia, a fellow Mizzou alumnus, and ended with completing 27 kilometers by arriving in Bhraga. For hours we rounded corners that revealed various snow-capped ranges reaching farther than our eyes could judge. Today was by and large the most beautiful of the four days thus far. To have another few weeks in the Himalayas is an amazing feeling.Read more

    Bhraka - Annapurna Day 5 (End)

    October 24, 2015 in Nepal

    Our homestay in the outer village of Bhraka was cozy enough to coax us into a late start in our ascent to Ice Lake. The views were amazing and made the descent a reluctant one. After a quick lunch in Outer Bhraka, Ken, Lucas, and I made our way to the main village of Bhraka, from which we will do a climb to Milarepa's Cave tomorrow morning. We settled in the village in the "New Yak Hotel" because of the name. Why not.

    In the village a 500+ year old gompa and monk/nun complex sits carved into the mountain.

    Milarepa's Cave - Annapurna Day 6

    October 25, 2015 in Nepal

    4300m. Milarepa is often referred to as Tibet's most talented Buddhist practitioner. Among the many stories of his life, one in particular highlights the years he spent meditating in a cave in the Himalayas. That cave was within reach of the Annapurna Circuit trail, so I had to make a quick stop and give it a look. It was made a monument so much of the expected cave-aspects were filled with statues and figures commemorating his Enlightenment.Read more
