Mr. Duck's travel log

Mr. Duck has been my travel companion abroad for 9 years now, and in each new country he gets pictures with all the sights! You can also check out our other travel adventures in Iceland 2009, Spain/Portugal/Scotland 2009, and Turkey 2008. I've been slowly working on setting up a separate blog with all my postings from Ghana 2007, but so far I just have the Mr Duck posting up.

Here are Mr Duck's pics from our trip around Peru...

  1. Trekking in Nepal is still the most favorite adventure holiday activity in the country. The two classic trekking routes either to Everest base camp or the Annapurna circuit are not easy and the challenge you'll face on either route will have a lasting effect. The Manaslu route trek around the world's eighth largest mountain is more remote but no less beautiful passing through stunning bamboo forests, villages filled with prayer flags and culminating with spectacular views from Larkya La. Mustang is an easier cultural trek, suitable for those with good general fitness but not necessarily any previous trekking experience. The language, culture and tradition of the Mustang region are still mostly Tibetan making this one of the most culturally interesting treks. There are shorter treks up the Langtang Valley and Helambu which are still hard work but also deeply rewarding. They generally begin in Kathmandu, leading through large grazing areas covered in flowers, dotted with stone huts used for butter making, Sherpa, Tamang villages and the homes of yak herders, right up to the Tibetan border.
