The adventure started in January, 1979, when Gail, Sean and Lin visited Nepal and attempted the Annapurna Circuit. They couldn’t go any further than Manang, because it was mid-winter, and the pass was snowed over, so they had to retrace their steps back to the beginning of the trail. The next year, Gail and Sean married, and gave birth to a son, Nile.
In 2006, Nile visited Nepal for the first time, and trekked the entire Annapurna Circuit. During that trip, the dream to return with his parents was born.
In 2014, Gail and Nile returned to Nepal to hike the Annapurna Circuit. In addition, they planned to visit the mystical region of Upper Mustang, a restricted area of Nepal populated by Tibetans, high in the Himalayas and along the border with Tibet.
This will be an account of their journey.
