Himalayas: trekking around Annapurna mount

Himalayas: trekking around Annapurna mount

Himalayas. Nepal. This is the way around the mount Annapurna down from Jomsom. It's the good place for trekking. You came to Jomsom by plane and then - go down.
The mountain, of course... But the trails are in very good condition. As you can see, sometimes even arranged steps. Still - it is the only way down, Jomsom's people get all the creature comforts by this way:

Himalayas. Sherpas

There are the great porters Sherpas. They are working. Well, as we are - on vacation, we can not even walk and walk. Little horses in the mountains is very hardy, local teamster all the way to guide your horse for a string, so you do not fall into the abyss. When you are traveling on horseback, the travel became much more comfortable, and by the way, it  became available not for the young and fit only.

Annapurna trekking holidays

Now we go along the dry riverbed - Himalayan rivers noticeably shallow in autumn.

Tibetan Mastiff

It is the Tibetan Mastiff. When I saw this dog, I was struck by how it looks like ... Himalayan yak! Of course, the yak is more then the dog, even such a large dog as the Tibetan Mastiff. But look, they have exactly the same thick black hair. I'd say it's Himalayan wool, it is not characteristic of normal dogs, and even more so for the bulls - because yak is such a Himalayan bull. Probably there, high in the mountains, this coat is a must for all animals. Unfortunately I have not photographed Himalayan yak, but I assure you, it looks exactly like this Tibetan yak >>
