“Khopra Annapurna Trek ”
My wife and her friends convinced me that we would be more than capable of trekking through Nepal. At first I found this dubious but, as it transpires, there are treks readily available for those of us who are not as spritely as we once were! The trekking was still a challenge, of course, but the guide was very understanding and helpful and we were more than able to complete the journey. I had been told about the view of the Annapurna Massif but put simply, there are no words, and no one photo can do it justice. Truly, it is a marvel.
