The Annapurna Circuit

Some of my favourite mountains.

Begnas Tal, near Pokhara. The tent shaped peak on the skyline is Annapurna II, my favourite mountain. Here it is again, early morning, from the ridge above Nalma. The bigger looking mountain is Lamjung Himal. Walking around the circuit, this is the first decent view you get of Annapurna II - the eastern edge of the north face. Lamjung Himal from Chame, sunrise. Lamjung Himal from Ghyaru, obscured by part of Annapurna II.
The peak of the north face of Annapurna II. Annapurna III. The full north face of AII. Sit and watch for long enough, you might see an avalanche. Staying in Ghyaru three nights, I saw at least six.
Tilicho Peak en route to Tilicho Lake. Sunset on Annapurnas II and III. One of the four Chulus, looking back from above Thorung Phedi. It's also my 20,000th photo with this camera! Final farewell to Annapurna II from about 5000m. Nilgiri South East from Tatopani.
