|23 April, 2014 - MBC to ABC down to Deurali (12500ft- 13500ft- 10500ft)|
We started the trek early at 5.45 am as we wanted a clear view of the mountains. The sun was already shining and had created a pink glow on Annapurna South,which everyone hastened to click. The temperature was freezing ,so all of us had worn layers of clothing though we were going to climb up. The trek started thru snow and most of it was like that,only small patches were without snow.as it was cold and the walk was thru snow in addition we were gaining altitude it was slightly tough. As we came closer ABC lodge came into our view first ,but we still had about half hours climb left.Finally we reached the most awaited moment,the board which declared that we were at ABC(4130 mtrs)!The view 360 degrees was only mountains .To our left was a small part of Hiunchuli, followed by Annapurna South ,Varaha peak, then the tallest Annapurna I(main)stood at 8091mtrs,Singu chuli ,Tent peak,Annapurna 3 (7555 mtrs),Gandharva chuli, and last Macchapuchare which completed the circle. This is one or probably the only place where one can get a 360 degree view of so many beautifull Himalayan peaks.
