Le parapente c’est la vie

Le circuit de l’Annapurna est une randonnée dans les montagnes de l’Annapurna, dans le centre du Népal. La longueur totale de l’itinéraire varie entre 160 et 230 km (100 à 145 mi), en fonction du lieu où le transport en voiture est utilisé et de la fin de la randonnée. Cette randonnée traverse deux vallées fluviales différentes et entoure le massif de l’Annapurna. Le sentier atteint son point culminant au col de Thorung La (5416m), touchant le bord du plateau tibétain. Pratiquement tous les randonneurs parcourent le chemin dans le sens inverse des aiguilles d’une montre, ce qui ralentit le gain d’altitude quotidien et permet de traverser le col du Thorong La plus facilement et en toute sécurité. Le paysage de montagne, vu de près, comprend le massif de l’Annapurna (Annapurna I-IV), le Dhaulagiri, le Machhapuchhre, le Manaslu, le Gangapurna, le Peak de Tilicho, le Peak de Pisang et le Paungda Danda. De nombreux autres sommets de 6000 à 8000 m d’altitude s’élèvent de la chaîne des Annapurna. Le trek commence à Besisahar ou à Bhulbhule dans la vallée de la rivière Marshyangdi et se termine dans la gorge de Kali Gandaki. Besisahar peut être atteint après sept heures de route de Katmandou.

Un déplacement consiste à déplacer des personnes entre des lieux géographiques relativement éloignés. Il peut s’agir de déplacements à pied, à vélo, en automobile, en train, en bateau, en bus, en avion ou autre, avec ou sans bagage, et peut être aller simple ou aller-retour. Les voyages peuvent également inclure des séjours relativement courts entre mouvements successifs. L’origine du mot "voyage" est probablement perdue pour l’histoire. Le terme "voyage" peut provenir de l’ancien mot français travail, qui signifie "travail". Selon le dictionnaire Merriam Webster, la première utilisation connue du mot voyage a eu lieu au 14ème siècle. Il indique également que le mot vient du moyen anglais Travailen, travelen (qui signifie tourmenter, travailler, s’efforcer, voyager) et plus tôt de l’ancien français travailler (qui signifie travailler avec acharnement, peiner). En anglais, nous utilisons encore parfois les mots "travail", ce qui signifie lutte. Selon Simon Winchester dans son livre The Best Travelers ‘Tales (2004), les mots "voyage" et "travail" partagent une racine encore plus ancienne: un instrument de torture romain appelé le tripalium (en latin, il signifie "trois enjeux" , comme pour empaler).

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts.

The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen.

Day 7
Dovan to Deurali

When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her cheek.
