I stayed in this wooden house in Upper Pisang, on the Annapurna Circuit. Too bad I couldn’t take a photo of the woman, who warmly welcomed us and whose food reminded me of home. But here is her son and his grandmother. 
The Nepalese are incredible humble people, who without any sort of judgement, respect their guests and treat them as their own. I cannot wait to go back to Nepal and document more people.

The sun shines over the Himalayan Range early in the morning, as seen from Thorong High camp, at 4800m above sea level.

Horse riders cruising through while having a laugh, as a trekker passes, at an altitude of 4000m. These riders were riding on a trekking trail with a 200m fall on the other side. Horses play a very important role in the high mountains in Nepal. They are used for transporting people and goods for construction. The locals are incredibly talented in riding the horses through harsh trails and it amazes me how incredibly cool they are about it.

Clouds cover the Annapurna range early in the morning as the sun shines on the Thorung high camp.
The high camp on the Annapurna circuit, at an altitude of 4880m is the last stop before reaching the Thorong La pass, which is at 5416m above sea level.

For the last one month, I’ve been trekking in Nepal. In the next few weeks, I will be sharing images from the trip. These images include extraordinary landscapes, people and their stories. This photo was taken from Poon Hill and you can see a part of the Annapurna Massif and the sun rising from behind the mountains. The one in the centre is the Annapurna South, the one to the immediate left is the Annapurna 1 and the one to the extreme right is the Machhapuchchhre. Stay tuned for more!
