Nepal, Machapuchre, Annapurna Trail
although some 20km away, this unclimbed, sacred mountain had remained hidden by clouds as we made our way up the Trail the previous day. So when I stepped out of our tea-house accommodation just after dawn on 11 October 2010 it was a real surprise to see the mountain dominating the valley. But soon low cloud took it away again - had it ever really been there?!
