A Tog's Trek: Travelling through Nepal

In 2011 I took eight kilos of Camera equipment on a 2 week trekking tour of Nepal. I took a great number of photographs and wrote 10,000 words of my impressions. I then spent a fair amount of time pulling it all together into a book on Blurb. You can read the whole thing for free on Blurb, or if you are feeling extravagant and want a physical copy, you can even buy it there.

A Tog's Trek: Travelling through Nepal

It was an amazing trip, though there were a few occasions whilst climbing the foothills of the Annapurna trail where I was tempted to throw the entire bag full of gear down the mountain just to be rid of the weight!

The scenery is, as you can imagine, breathtaking at times, and the people often express themselves through the vibrant use of colour. Temples dot the landscape and crops sway in the breeze. The Annapurna river flows through the middle of the area we were hiking and it is bitterly cold glacial run-off from the heights of the Himalayas.

I can't recommend a visit highly enough.
