We’re on the trail - after months of planning we are finally on our way to Annapurna Base Camp ⛺️. Here we are on our way to Hille before heading on to Tikkhedhunga for the night (and WiFi for better or worse). Onwards and inevitably upwards.
Now if that wasn't a good training run... new women's FKT on the Annapurna Circuit!!! Breaking the old record by over 15 hours.
219km, 10300m ascent, 10000m descent (according to my watch GPS, will compare the @garminoutdoor InReach stats later - link still in profile if you want to check it out yourself), going up to over 17,000ft elevation on Thorong La Pass. I made it to Nayapul at 11:39am local time today Sunday, after leaving Besisahar at 12pm on the dot on Wednesday. 3 days 23 hours 39 minutes!!
Looking at the second photo I can't quite fathom yet that I truly circumnavigated that entire massif on foot. Annapurna Circuit: one for the ages.
