Trekking ABC

Our first year in Nepal Jeremiah did the Annapurna Base Camp trek. This year it was my turn! During our Dashain break, a friend and I went together to Poon Hill, and then I went on to do the rest of it by myself. I've never been so sore in my life, but it was absolutely stunning and I'm so glad that I did it. The weather was great, a few rainy days but mostly in the afternoons after I'd made it to a teahouse for the night, and there were amazing views of the mountains.

I did the trek in 7 days: Nayapul to Tikka Durga, Tikka Durga to Ghorepani, Ghorepani to Poon Hill (for sunrise) to Chhomrong (that was a long day!), Chomrong to Himalaya, Himalaya to ABC, ABC to Chhomrong, and Chhomrong to Nayapul.

Dinner most days: Dal Bhat

I crossed a lot of bridges, this was the worst
