The Waterfall Between Bhulbule and Ngadi
Nepal

The popular Annapurna Circuit is best tackled in an anticlockwise fashion as it allows more time for a steady-paced acclimatization to set in.

Normally, most trekkers arrive in the town of Besisahar to take advantage of a jeep ride to Bhulbule which used to shave off at least the most dreaded part of the trail which is mainly along a dirt road frequented by locals on pick-up trucks - the dust and exhaust fumes so generated by the traffic is not for those with respiratory ailments to say the least. Unfortunately this is no longer the case as a major building work has begun with the intention of extending the road all the way to Manang further north  - one might have to fly into Manang in the future to avoid the traffic.

The waterfall above is located about 20 minutes or so after crossing the suspension bridge at Bhulbule.

More About Nepal

Nepal lies between India and China and it contains Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain in the world. The Himalayas here are pretty rugged terrain.The first civilizations here date to 600 BC in the Kathmandu valley, where the capital is now located. According to Buddhist tenets, the Buddha was born here in 563 BC, incarnating as Prince Siddhartha Gautama and leading the world to enlightenment through liberation from suffering. Many small temples and shrines like this one exist for Buddhists to stop and offer prayers.Early support of Buddhism gradually gave way to Hinduism and today Nepal is the world's only Hindu monarchy. The kingdom of Nepal was united in 1768 by King Prithvi Narayan Shah, who fled the Moghul invasions of India. Soon after that there was a period of conflict with the British East India Company leading to a treaty recognizing the independence of Nepal -- in 1923!After WWII Nepal was ruled by monarchy but it arrived at the 1990's split by an official ban on political parties. Intense protest by the pro-democracy movement and the Maoist guerrilla Communist movement led to free elections in 1991, only to be followed by violence between the Nepalese government and Maoist guerillas.Since the turn of the millennium there have been several important steps taken in the peace process, including a new Constitution for Nepal and a cease fire agreement with the rebels. A compromise government was achieved whereby a Maoist was elected prime minister without his taking control of the armed forces of the country.At the time of this writing it has been one week since the compromise government has collapsed. We offer our hopes that the citizens and government of this beautiful country will come to a peaceful agreement soon.Text by Steve Smith.
