Best time backpacking with benjamingray! Memories for life!
Part of 30 days spent in Nepal, probably the best trip I've ever taken. Did the circuit in 16 days then took advantage of being acclimated, flew to Lukla and climbed Island Peak rather quickly. Won't be my last time in Nepal...
I flew to Jomson from Pokhara, crossed the Thorung-La, down to Manang from where I went to Tilicho Lake. I met one other guy, from Russia, doing the trek clockwise. Back at Manang I accompagnied someone suffering from AMS back to Kathmandu by helicopter where I took her to the British hospital. Two days later she was just fine and continued her trip around the world. Exciting times!
Even better, make a side trip to stunning Tilicho Lake!
Very rewarding. Do it independently. Take a leisurely pace and do side hikes. Did an unforgettable week long trip over the Kang La to Nar-Phu. Highly recommended.
Great and very rewarding trekking. Highest point is Thorung La, 5416m.
