Annapurna Circuit, Nepal, Oct 2009

We visited Nepal in October, 2009 and hiked over 170 miles on the Annapurna Circuit, including side trips up to Dhampus Pass and Dhaulagiri Ice Fall for closer looks at Dhaulagiri. We started in the east at Besi Sahar and proceeded in a counterclockwisedirection, passing over the Thorong La at nearly 18,000 ft. We stayed a few extra days to visit Chitwan National Park in southern Nepal. We didn't see any tigers but we did see rhino, wild boar and plenty of spotted deer.
