We trekked for 6 night and 7 days through Annapurna Conservation Area. It is the largest protected land mass (7629 sq. Km) in Nepal and is on its situated on its northern boarder. It boast climate zones tropical to alpine as well as great biodiversity.
On April 25th, 2015 Nepal suffered an earthquake of a magnitude of 7.9. It was a devestating blow to the country. It is a little over two years since the earthquake when we arrived and damage is still evident. Some of the major sites are still extensively damaged, some building are in ruins and there is a lot of construction. However, that does not diminish the culture or the feeling of the capitol of Nepal. I think it makes it stronger- we are witnessing a nation continue to rebuild out the rubble.
