Annapurna base camp adventure Trekking in Nepal [00:36]
An unsurpassed panoramic view that offers spiritual elation is probably the exact way to define the configuration of this exotic land of mountains - Annapurna sanctuary. Himalayan giants that was explored by Jimmy Roberts in 1956 and brought to the attention of world by the British Expedition to Machhapuchhere in 1957 surround by vast nature-amphitheatre. Astonishing altitude variations and ecological diversity make this area flow over with natural beauty. You will cross-sacred valleys surrounded by enormous peaks. The Annapurna Sanctuary is a hidden glacial hollow that shimmers like a jewel in the mountains. For thousands of years, many people from diverse ethnic backgrounds have carved a lifestyle out of its steep terraces and barren plateaus. The excellent habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals reflect the region's biological diversity. Multiple species of orchids, rhododendrons, birds, reptile and other flora and fauna are to be astonished. This region is an opportunity to a land of enchantment.

Nepal trip (part 1) [06:24]
Our parents are living in Tansen, Nepal, to work at the Tansen Mission Hospital. We went to visit them. This is part 1, a little of our trip to get there. We met my brother in Kathmandu, spent a few days there, and then all took a day long bus ride to Tansen. We brought a few hospital supplies that required constant refrigeration, and a bunch of sewing and knitting supplies for my Mom. Our bus had a flat tire, and apparently so did our airplane in Bangladesh. We were delayed for longer then expected, and although we got into Kathmandu, the airport closed after we arrived so the plane wasn't allowed to depart back to Hong Kong. I could feel the plane getting jacked up, and put back down, repeatedly, as the workers tried to change the tire. Fortunately none of us got motion sickness on the bus trip from Kathmandu to Tansen, but not all of our trips would be so fortunate. It is hard to convey how rugged and steep the terrain north of Butwal is.
