After a brief tour of Katmandu and visits to several schools that Room to Read helped villagers build, we began our trek around the Annapurna Circuit in Besi Sahar at an elevation of 2,700 feet. On our 12th day we reached the 17,769 foot La Throng Pass. On our descent through the Kali Ghandhaki River Valley, we passed through villages of Muktinath, Kagbeni, Jomsom, Marpha and Tatopani. We ended our trek in Beni where we caught a dangerous bus ride to Pokhara and a flight home.
