The second week of the Annapurna Circuit brings ice cold nights, steep climbs, and the infamous Himalayas.
We spent a few days in a city called Manang: resting, doing some side hikes, and spoiling ourselves at the only real restaurant/bakery on the trek.

The paths in and around Manang were lined with with Mary Jane. The goats seemed to like it as much as the locals.

Ice Lake – named as such because of the reflections of the Annapurna mountains on the water – is a 1000m, tough climb from Manang but worth it since barely anyone makes the trek.DSC05082

High Camp

After one night at high camp, we headed out early the next morning for the pass.

(The Khalerias have been serious beach bums over the last two weeks – enjoying the sun, surf, and snorkeling in Nusa Lembongan and Gili Trawangan, Indonesia… I’ll hopefully be back to reality and online soon!)

The Khalerias are back in Bangkok, and finally out of the internet-black-hole more commonly known as Laos.  Thanks for sticking with me.

More posts on our 3 week trek through the Himalayas coming soon… here’s a peek:

Many, many more pictures and a few more posts coming before the new year. The Khalerias are spending a few days relaxing in Bangkok with a friend we met in Albania, before heading to Indonesia on Christmas day to meet up with The Parsonian.

The Khalerias posse has grown over the last two weeks – we are currently travelling with our friends Alex and Josh, who joined us to trek the Annapurna Circuit. We are leaving for tomorrow morning:

The Annapurna Circuit is a 21 day trek through the Himalayas in Northern Nepal. We’ll be trekking from tea house to tea house over the next three weeks, with views of some of the highest mountains in the world. The highest pass we will be taking on is 5418 meters (wish Sabeena luck with altitude sickness!)

Here are the deets:

Of course, we won’t have internet access (the cloud isn’t that cool yet) – but have no fear, I have a few posts coming while we’re gone.

Be back at the end of October! Should I be a Himalaya for Halloween?
