I just came back from a 10-day trek in Nepal zig-zagging between the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges. I chose an alternative, non-touristic path and so walked in total peace from village to village where I spent the nights with the locals and barely any tourists. I eventually reached the foot of the mountains yet stayed so very far from their unattainable peaks.
The Himalayas are a world apart in which the mountains are majestic queens towering over everything else. Their height and volume are humbling and awe-inspiring but also calming and soothing. Nature at its best.
