  • Day224

    It all started with us squeezing into a bus fully packed with excited hikers, backpacks and some locals sitting on the lap of the driver. 4 hours in squatting position in the aisle were already kind of proving our endurance, but this shouldn’t stop us :)

    We started trekking the Annapurna Circuit in Besisahar at about 800m through a
    peaceful, green landscape, along a river full of water, rushing waterfalls, over scary suspension bridges into a deep valley with steep slopes, rice paddies, and charming little villages where little more details waited to be discovered. Women working in the fields, doing laundry, cooking; men smashing rocks or processing wood; colorful Tibetan prayer flags, banana trees, piles of firewood.

    We learned that the lodge owners start making their offers in the afternoon, rooms are usually for free if you eat dinner and breakfast there, a fair deal everywhere on the circuit!

    The first days on the trek definitely raised our appetite for more hiking and the following days should become even more beautiful...

    Up and down

    April 12 in Nepal

    There’s a Nepalese song about their trails, meaning something like „up and down, up and down, this is the Nepali flat, this is so difficult“ - and yes, this is absolutely true, there is no 'flat', and although we want to climb up to 5400m, only going up would probably be a bit boring, wouldn't it? Thus, the trail is going up the slopes, going down, changing to the other side of the river and winding up again.

    But mainly we’re going up, day by day, the nights started to get really cold and in the mornings, when the sky is still clear, we can see the snow and some impressing Himalaya peaks in the distance - we’re getting closer!

    Startpunkt Annapurna Rundkurs

    October 17, 2015 in Nepal

    Nach dem heutigen Morgen haben uns in Hostel zwei süße Affen auf dem Dach begrüßt. Danach ging es um 6 Uhr zum Bus, wo uns eine sieben stündige Busfahrt zu unserem heutigen Ziel Besisahar erwartete. Die Fahrt war echt spektakulär, beginnend bei den Leuten, über die schönen Straßen, wenn man es Straßen nennen kann, bis hin zur überragenden Sicht. Hier angekommen haben wir erstmal im Hostel eingecheckt, die Aussicht genossen und uns für die erste Tour morgen gestärkt.
    Ach übrigens, hier sind jeden Tag so um die 27 Grad, nicht so kalt wie in Deutschland ;)

    1. Tag Annapurna Rundkurs

    October 18, 2015 in Nepal

    Den ersten Tag kann man eigentlich ganz schnell zusammenfassen - hart, schmerzlich, schweißtreibend, aber mit zwei grinsenden und erschöpften Gesichtern als es geschafft war. Wir starteten kurz nach acht Uhr in Besisahar und waren nach acht Stunden mit einer Mittagspause am Ziel in Syange. Start war bei 760 m ü. n.N. und das Ziel bei 1100 m ü. n.N. ... aber zwischen durch ging es ständig auf und ab, so das wir ca 700 Höhenmeter heute zurückgelegt haben. Aber von der Zeit war es für den Anfang mehr als zuviel. ;)Read more

    Gateway to Himalaya

    September 28, 2017 in Nepal

    Puhh.. i have not realized that it will be that tough to get to the foot of Himalaya. We were kind of shocked as we were told that during dashian (nepalis most important Festival) nearly all People from kathmandu (almost 2 Mio inhabitants) were on the way to their families in the mountains or in the valleys outside of the city.. it seemed that every bus in kathmandu was on the track and we were among all of them. As you might imagine it was not an easy ride to the gateway to himalaya in besishahar.. we were sitting 12 hours in a small crumpy old loud dusty hot indian songs playing bus until we could fell asleep in our guest House...
    The next day it went only marginally better.. this time we drove in a 4 wheel jeep but with the same minimal space inside.. and even worse road conditions.. my knees and the right flank of my head have now some scars 😄🙈 however along the very adventurous ride we had the chance to see how families celebrate the holy dashain by sacrificing their goats. Even one live sacrification we could watch.. but seeing how nepalis decapitate a goat is not everyone taste but interesting 🙈
    Finally we reached our point from where we started our trekking 🎉 After driving in a car on a bumpy road sometimes scaring close to the abyss it was an awesome feeling to walk the real first kilometres in the Mountains until chyamche.. now annapurna trekking is on fire 🔥

    Bahundanda - Annapurna Day 1 (End)

    October 20, 2015 in Nepal

    (1330m) Day one was mostly on the road, passing hydro development projects led by the Chinese. The lack of stunning scenery and the made traveling pretty efficient, so Lucas, my Brazilian co-trekker, and I covered 20 km by sundown.

    Tag 1: Kathmandu --> Sangue

    November 5, 2016 in Nepal

    Heute sind wir mit Bus und Jeep zum Startpunkt unserer Tour gereist. Ich laufe mit Diego aus Spanien diesen Trek. Den Guide heisst King Boca und ist ein waschechter Nepali.

    Das typische nepalsische Essen ist Dal Bhat: eine Mischung aus Reis, Linsensuppe, Gemüse und wahlweise auch mit Fleisch. Sehr lecker aber auf Dauer eintönig. Unser Guide wird - wie sich herausstellen wird - jeden Tag zweimal Dal Bhat essen: mittags und abends.Read more

    Trek to Jagat (25km)

    August 13, 2017 in Nepal

    We were joined today by Xavier who wants to complete the trek in a similar time. We are slightly ahead of schedule this evening but with a few extra blisters and aches.

    Manaslu dag 12 en 13

    October 8, 2016 in Nepal

    De grote klim zit er op nu is het alleen nog maar 4 dagen afdalen. In m'n hoofd was de trekking al zo goed als klaar maar in de praktijk was dat wel anders. Afdalen valt me erg zwaar, nu deden we ook zo'n 1000 meter naar beneden per dag. De combinatie van stijl naar beneden, een technische route en 10 kilo op m'n rug maakte het een pittige afdeling. Ron gaat het afdalen een stuk beter af. Omhoog liep ik een flink stuk harder maar nu lopen we zo ongeveer het zelfde tempo.

    Gisteren was een geweldige dag! We hadden eigenlijk super goed uitzicht op verschillende gigantische toppen. Dit maakte de afgelopen dagen met slecht uizicht weer helemaal goed.

    Vandaag kreeg ik steeds meer last van m'n linker enkel door alle rotsen op de trail. Het laatste half uur was ff afzien vandaag. Morgen hebben we de optie om op de "weg" te lopen, dit loopt een stuk soepeler. Hiermee hoop ik dat mn enkel minder snel op gaat spelen. Wanneer de pijn echt te veel wordt kunnen we ook nog een jeep terug nemen maar ik er niet vanuit dat het zo ver komt.

    Ohja alle foto's voeg ik achter nog toe want die staan nog op m'n camera
