Nepal, land of natural beauty

By Daniel

It is a bit of a surreal feeling posting this blog while in Tanzania getting ready for safari adventures. It already feels like ages ago  that I was in Nepal and did a 13 day trek over the Annapurna Circuit and Tilicho Lake but it was only two weeks back that I was walking through the beautiful Himalayas. Definitely one of the toughest things I did in my life but it was all worth it. The waking up early, the walking up to 7 hours a day, dragging my backpack and camera gear with me and venturing to higher altitudes than I have ever been. I witnessed beautiful and constantly changing landscapes, visited small villages on (almost) unreachable places, met friendly locals and made a friend in my Nepalese guide, Sagar.

Below you will find a selection of photos of my time in Nepal. I hope you enjoy them and let me know what you think..!
