Pinakin tackles Annapurna Circuit in Nepal

Posted on 23rd October 2018

Congratulations to one of AS Mosley’s Analysis Engineers, Pinakin Patel, who recently completed the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal.

The trek, which encircles Annapurna Massif in the Himalayas, totalling around 250 km in length with the highest pass being a mere 5416m above sea level. It took Pinakin 13 days to complete the feat, which he’s been training for over the last 6 months. Tilicho Lake (pictured below), was one of the lakes he passed along the way; it is situated 4920m above sea level.

Commenting on the trek, Pinakin said: “I have always been fascinated with Himalayas; Annapurna is one of the most popular treks in the world, known for its ever-changing scenery, tall glacier mountains, quaint mountain villages and Nepali hospitality. Trekking in Annapurna was such an exuberant experience and one that I’ll never forget.”

Spectacular – well done Pinakin!
