Above the clouds in Nepal

Poonhill in Nepal was truly majestic.

415am wake up call to trek 3290 steps straight up with only our headlamps to light the way. Heavy fog cleared just in time for sunrise to reveal a masterpiece. Above the clouds we were treated with a glorious view of the whole Annapurna mountain range & it took my breath away.

And…..to think we weren’t even supposed to be here due to our original goal & dream was to conquer Mt Everest. 10 travelers total – 1 US, 2 Canada, 1 Denmark, 1 Australia, 2 Cayman Islands, 1 South Africa, 1 Russia & 1 Korea. But after 4 days delayed & no flights in or out of Lukla (the most dangerous airport in the world due to the short runway between mountains) there were 2,000 travelers stranded, so we made the heartbreaking decision to change routes.

I believe things happen for a reason & we are blessed to have been given this gift. EMBRACE THE JOURNEY & face any detour, planned or not, as it will take you to amazing places – Annapurna Base Camp trek was magical!!!
