I tried to trek through the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal in June 2013. I reached as high as Letdar (4200 meters). It rained a lot from Manang onward. The continuous snow at Letdar finally convinced us to turn back and give up on the trek. It is always sad when I cannot complete a trek, but then if the weather is adverse I would like to come back to the place, rather than continuing foolishly.
I have written a day by day account of my trek. So here I collect it in one post. The posts after Letdar may not interest you as I was walking back whereas you would be going ahead. But I need to record it so that I may remember even 10 years from now. I cannot tell you how happy I was when we finally got to the road and found a jeep that would take us back to the civilization!
