Annapurna Circuit Trek - A Four Part Series
Join me and a few friends for a twenty day trek over 180 miles of the Nepalese Himalaya and across a 17,769 foot pass.Part One: Kathmandu to Pokhara
How do you prepare for a 20-day trek in Nepal? With a load of bootlegged gear in Kathmandu.
Part Two: Pokhara to Thorung La pass
Setting foot on the Annapurna trail is like stepping back in time. The trappings and distractions of modern society vanish.
Part Three: Thorung La pass
The first hour hurt the most on this unforgiving trek over 17,769 foot Thorung La pass.
Part Four: The Long Walk Down
Join me and a few friends for a twenty day trek over 180 miles of the Nepalese Himalaya and across a 17,769 foot pass.
Circling back to Pokhara, we passed through more spectacular scenery, medieval villages, and surprisingly modern villages.

Pugh, that was amazing! Most relaxing 11 minutes I've had at work in a long time...get me out of here. I long to be mountain dog.
Honey: You're doing it and we all love you for it. The videos rock and I dig the music. If you can, try to grab the new Lemon Jelly CD ( or download ). The music would work so well for a lot of these videos. Steve Malkmus next week for the crew here in Chi town. We'll miss you!
Much love - Sara
You speak with such a "lifted" feeling in these videos. It's great to see you so inspired.
Apparently Matheu was high this morning. Great vid Pughey!!!
What was the snack that you shared at the end celebration??
Fabulous writing, video and photos. I look forward to every update.
I should have included a closeup of the snacks. They were Mars bars - incredibly tasty at high altitude!
Virtually all the music in the vagabonding videos is from Wobblyhead artists. Wobblyhead is a record company that my friends run out of Milwaukee. Check them out.
Pugh indeed! that video reeks of cool. great job! all the best to ya buddy.
This is professional quality. The composition of your shots and the music really pull it all together nicely.
"I've got to relax...more."
The videos you've been posting, along with the posts and photos, are simply phenomenal. I love every new installment...thanks so much!
Pugh, you blow my mind and rock my world. Thank you.
I've gone in 99 in Nepal, for doing this Annapurna round trek !
Thank you for this video, it brings me a lot of pleasant memories-excuse me for my poor english...
Have good times, bye bye
I'd love to purchase a DVD of your experience/trip. Any such plans for a disc once you've returned and edited stuff down?
jwilker: Thanks for the good words. Yes, I'm definitely going to do something with the video I've shot (32 hours so far) when I get home, and I'll put it out on DVD. Sign up for the newsletter to stay in the loop.
