Our goal in Nepal is to hike the Annapurna Circuit, which is roughly 100 miles of trail around the Annapurna Mountains.  The trail passes Manaslu,  Langtang Himal, Annapurna II and IV, Annapurna III and Gangapurna, and, of course, Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri — passing through the world’s deepest gorge in between those two 8,000-plus meter peaks.  The pass, called Throng-La, is 17,769′ above sea level.  That’s pretty high considering the entire goal of this trek is to stay as low in elevation as possible!

Expected trail time is 17-21 days.  We’ll see how we do!
