The Sierra Blogging Post has been receiving regular updates from “Drew & Erin” a young couple who has set out to travel around the World. Their past updates have involved the intrepid couple departing for their journey, reporting in from St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and then later from Hawaii.
Today’s update is far more interesting to me, someone who’s not a big fan of the beach. The World travelers have just completed a 12-day trek in the Annapurna Sanctuary and returned to report on it.
The blog post will be of interest to anyone interested in hiking the region. Erin comments on the spectacular views and amazing sunrises in the Himalaya and talks about the flora and fauna that you’ll find along the trail. She also notes that this isn’t really wilderness backcountry, as their are villages along the trail every few hours, and plenty of trekkers and Nepalese people as well.
Still, it sounds like an amazing trek, which manages to come in at #8 on the Ten Best Hikes in the World list over at BestHike.com. (Wow! I managed to get two plugs in for Best Hike in one day! I’ll expect a check shortly Rick! 😉 )
