Up towards Upper Pisang – Another Day at the Annapurna Trek

Annapurna Trekking
Usually when you leave (or enter) a village they have the Mani Walls, and than a sort of gate tower – usually with prayer wheels. Mani Walls are a compilation of nice carved stone tablets, most with the inscription “Om Mani Padme Hum” which loosely translates to “Hail to the jewel in the lotus”.

I never saw a rock wall like that before – for days you can see it – in front and later behind you.

Fairy like forest: nice and creepy at the same time.

That night i did stay at one of the not so good gh of the trek. The good part of it was that the 2 British and the 3 American did stay at the same place so at last dinner and breakfast was ok. not the food but the company! I had a window facing one of the Annapurna mountains. As it was almost full moon the view in the night was really amazing. Still lots of stars and the white snow mountain – had even to go out of bed and open the window to see it better!

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.
