Nepal: The trek to Annapurna Base Camp Day 03 – Travelling to Pokhara

Nepal: The trek to Annapurna Base Camp Day 03 – Travelling to Pokhara

29 April 2014 Day 3 started early. But there was only one agenda: travel to Pokhara. Pokhara is within 30 miles of Annapurna, and apparently a stop before any treks up to Annapurna for most trekkers.

Fearing about the dust from the traffic we experienced the day before,…

Nepal: The trek to Annapurna Base Camp Day 02 – Bump In!

Day 2 started hot. Apparently, Kathmandu is on rolling blackout, or also known as load shedding. The fan was switched off as a result (so were the phones we were charging). Low investment in power generation, high levels of corruption, and political turmoil have resulted in one of the most severe power shortages in the world. Furthermore, much of the large hydro power projects are export orientated and financed by India. Such projects provide only a limited percentage of generated…

“Help me convince Mummy to let me go to Nepal” My sister was referring to the trek that was organised by SMUX Trekking one day during the final school semester. Nonchalantly, I said, “OK.” However, there were many things weighing on my mind, including dealing with the mess of the time (mis-)management I was in.
