To Manang and further to Tilicho Base Camp – Side Trip on the Annapurna Trek

The days get longer from today on – well lets see – I should get my Indian visa in a few hours so looks like moving to Buddha’s birthplace tomorrow. And than India here I am again. From there on even my days will be WARMER!! That is what counts.

Lunar Eclipse + Winter Solstice ”” First in 372 Years!!
That was yesterday but only visible in North and South America – hope you guys did have a look at that??!!!

A nice site trip from the main trekking route. Tilicho Lake is one of the highest lakes in the world. Of course they advertise it as the highest which is not true. It was a late morning course I had breakfast with the British team and my friend from Switzerland. Than we took of in the wrong direction. Than they went back to Manang and i had a really hard day reaching the Tilicho Base Camp only a few minutes before it got dark.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.

    Your pictures steal my breath way– probably like the altitude steals yours! :-) You really have a gift for capturing panoramic views and catching local people in a very natural way. Just fantastic! Your photos never fail to get a WOW out of me!

    No lunar eclipse in Sidney, Nebraska– way too cloudy. I was so disappointed. :-(

    I just watched a show about Buddha’s life last week so I’m looking forward to seeing what you see!

    Safe travels!
