This trip was a whirlwind from start to finish. Such amazing sights sounds and experiences. The contrast between historical Forts, spiritual sights, wildlife and natural wonders was amazing. The travel however was challenging at times.

Nepal: One Year On…
One year on since the earthquake that devastated Nepal struck, we sent our very own filmmaker Olly Pemberton out to the beautiful mountain nation to find out how the funds raised by our Emergency Appeal are being used to help remote communities where the big aid agencies don’t go. Whilst filming our 3-day Medical Camp in Thulopatel, he met hundreds of local people, many of whom had walked 2 days to attend the camp, and here he documents their stories…

Euan Stanwix Manaslu Lodge Circuit
This is an amazing trip which, unlike the Annapurna Circuit (which I did in 2019) brings you far closer to the big mountains including the 8,000 metre massif of Manaslu. Due to the recent hard monsoon on 2022 the trail had been recently modified and included a number of narrow paths across landslides (think traversing high screes in rthe UK) which wouldn’t be to everyone’s tastes but were necessary in the circumstances. The Manaslu Circuit is much quieter than the Annapurna Circuit, takes in a lot more villages and general culture of Nepal and doesn’t include the dusty main roads that seem a feature of the Annapurna Circuit nowadays. As such, the whole group found it more authentic, the scenery a lot more spectacular and a thoroughly enjoyable trip from start to finish. In teh Exodus brochure it has teh same difficulty rating as the Annapurna Circuit but our group thought it was a few grades harder and because of the time of the year we were wearing crampons for 4-5 hours on the ‘pass day’ due to amount of compacted snow on the ground. A thoroughly memorable trip in an amazing region.
