Nepal. Manang. View from Manaslu to Thorong Peak.
Nepal. Manang. View from Manaslu to Thorong Peak. In this panorama, the whole essence of my campaign around Annapurna, or rather its unexpected turn-opening. Annapurna I did not see, or rather I saw Annapurna II, IV, V. But the first, the highest, on this side of the massif is not visible. I slept through it on the way back. But if you are not too lazy and go up in the Mananga area to the local hill, you can see at the same time the two extreme points of our track: the Manaslu massif in the east, where we started, and the Thorong Peak in the west, where we are going. Between them, among other things, 125 kilometers. The visibility is beautiful, the temperature is +15, the dazzling sun, and inside you music sounds. На этой панораме вся суть моего похода вокруг Аннапурны, вернее ее неожиданный поворот-открытие. Аннапурну я так и не увидел, вернее видел Аннапурну II, IV, V. а вот первую, самую высокую, с этой стороны массива не видно. Я ее проспал в атобусе на обратном пути. Зато, если не полениться и подняться в районе Мананга на местную горку, то можно увидеть одновременно две крайние точки нашего трека: массив Манаслу на востоке, откуда мы начинали, и пик Торонг на западе, куда мы держим путь. Между ними, между прочим, 125 километров. Видимость прекрасная, температура +15, ослепительное солнце, а внутри тебя звучит музыка.

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.
