Syange, 15 Years Later – Nepal Annapurna Circuit Revisited

During the spring of 1996 I trekked the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. In the autumn of 2011 I returned to visit a part of this trek, and discovered that heavy tourism development along the trail changed the area dramatically, making the encounter disappointing. But an exciting visit in the village of Syange left an enjoyable memory after all. I brought with me photos I took at the 1996 trip, and locals started to identify their friends and relatives... In this film we shall visit the village of Syange, try to meet people we have met 15 years before, and compare photos of the village to see how it has changed in these 15 years.
