We must accept life for what it actually is – a challenge to our quality without which we would never know of what stuff we are made, or grow to our full stature.
– Robert Lewis Stevenson
I’ve always loved a challenge.

HIMALAYA LODGE, GHANDRUK, 6600ft, 10 Oct: I awoke to a clear view of Fishtail and sunrise over the Annapurnas. Garden fragrances add to the overall beauty and tranquility of Sanctuary Lodge.
After breakfast we trekked along the Modi River Valley through local farms then began to climb out of the valley and up, up, up. Our trail passed through small villages, terraced rice fields and forests with spectacular views of the surrounding valley, Fishtail and occasionally Annapurna South amid the clouds.
