Far East Adventure Travel Best Of “Live”-Annapurna Circuit, Nepal Part II

By John Saboe | Nepal

I was truly looking forward to live streaming much of my recent trek of the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. This of course is one of the most popular hiking trails in the world with stunning views of the Annapurna range of the Himalaya.

An opportunity to walk through a subtropical region, forest, and the outer edges of the Tibetan Plateau. One of the most varied landscapes to trek in the world topped off with authentic true villages, not merely trekking enclaves, with a chance to experience Nepal’s rich culture of Hinduism and Buddhism.

Unfortunately due to lack of infrastructure and technology it may be still awhile before live streaming in most of the regions becomes a reality.

Armed with two sim cards and knowledge of which areas would have the best opportunity to broadcast live from I was disappointed when I arrived to find out there was just not enough bandwidth needed to stream via cellular data in almost all of these villages.

The opportunity to show others a place that makes my heart sing, like Nepal’s Himalaya and the Annapurna Circuit will for now will remain mostly a dream.

I am happy to share the few rare moments where it was possible to stream via Periscope.

In this episode of Far East Adventure Travel some highlights from the last stop on my Annapurna Circuit Trek from the town of Jomsom, Nepal.
