Two years of continuous work without a long vacation had taken a toll on me. I had been on both sides of Annapurna and wanted to be on mountains once again. Sunil and I had been working on our project Makalu, for a while and we desperately needed a break. We set plans to be at Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) and taking several days’ leave rushed to Pokhara leaving office around 3:15pm on a Friday. We stayed in Pokhara at my home for the night.

“… it is amazing how one welcomes even the coldest air when you’re lacking it … it was a night that I will never forget.”
