My First Nepal Trekking

I went to Nepal earlier this May and took this photo I love so much. When everything looked so right together… rugged prayer flags, vibrant red flowers, pastel brick wall and a white window of a shack somewhere in the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. This is maybe not a picture of glorious Himalayan peaks but it screams Nepal so loud to me: reminding me on how colorful and sweet my adventure was.

I trekked to Australian Base Camp with maximum altitude of  1,900 m a.s.l. to see the great mountain views of the Annapurna Range. The next day it was all descends with a stop-by at a picturesque village of Dhampus and the trek ended in Phedi. It’s a half day hike from Kande to Australian Camp, it’s called a “gentle” climb but it already caused me some trouble. Lesson number one: wanna climb that mountain? better get  your freaking arse moving! Lesson’s well learnt.

Doing this trip I crossed of an item from my bucket list: seeing the Himalayas and Mount Everest with my own eyes. I saw the Annapurna Range of the Himalayas and also the whole Khumbu subsection including the glorious Sagarmatha. Then I came to an epiphany; seeing them is not enough! I have to experience the Himalaya!  I made a pledge to myself on my trek that day: I will come back to Nepal and reach the Everest Base Camp before I am 35 years old!

Well, one’s never too old to dream a new dream.

Me on my first trekking in Nepal. Seeing the prayer flags dancing in the wind always soothe me.

That’s what I absolutely loved about this journey: I had a new dream, a new goal, something to keep me challenged. I am starting my quest on being a fitter and healthier self. The motivation is simple: the fitter I got, the higher and further I would go.

Let’s see how far I go…
