Nepal is home to some of the most famous mountains in the world, including such giants as Everest, Annapurna, Makalu and Manaslu. I'm not a climber, just a humble hillwalker, but any walkers ambition is to trek in the foothills of the Himalayas. I have managed to do this on three occasions, twice in the Annapurna foothills, and once in the Everest region. I hope the following pictures will convey something of what I consider to be one of the world's most beautiful countries.
