Annapurna Base Camp trek 2012

...Was it for the mountains, or the dal bhat?... A trek in the Himalaya of Nepal, October 2012. We walked 19 days for approx. 60 miles (100km) and about 32,800 feet (10,000m) in elevation changes. Beginning in the tropical lowlands, and going to the alpine environment of ABC (4130m / 13,550 ft) where the surrounding panorama of glacier peaks reach 8091m (26,545 ft), it is a truly majestic place.
