Returning to the mountains

Now that I've settled into my...ahem...'career break', I feel ready to get out into the world again. And it should be no surprise that I've chosen Nepal. A brief visit to Kathmandu would have been my introduction to Nepal, as part of my Himalayan adventure last year, but because of the devastating earthquakes it was not to be. I feel happy to be able to support the tourism recovery in a small way by going now.
Of course, I couldn't go to Nepal and not walk in the mountains. But I really don't know how I would cope with altitude, so I've chosen this itinerary that includes the Panchase Trek - just a taster really - which will give me 4 days of walking in the Annapurna foothills. And no camping.
We start off in Kathmandu, travel to Pokhara, do the Panchase Trek, visit Chitwan National Park, then return to Kathmandu. I'll be staying on for a bit after that, but that might be a separate blog - I'll figure that out later.
