Deurali is one of the last steps before you get to Annapurna base camp if you are doing the Annapurna Sanctuary trek.

My suggestion:
Deurali is at an altitude of 3,200 metres and once past that the danger of getting altitude sickness increases. To minimise your risk, walk slowly, at your own pace, and don't hesitate to descend if you feel the symptoms.

While I was in Deurali I stayed a night in one of the little lodges. After having wolfed down a copious dal bhat (rice and lentils, the national dish of Nepal), when I walked out of the dining room I was surprised to see snow falling heavily. It a few minutes everything was covered in snow and the snow was so heavy that you couldn't see 5 metres ahead.

The next day the snow had stopped falling and the mountains were completely covered in white, which made the trek even better as the softness of the snow made a good contrast with the sharp peaks which overlooked the trail. Without going so far as to think you are George Mallory off to base camp under the snow, it does make you feel a bit like a proper moutaineer, great for people who like sporty holidays!

*Afterthe powerful earthquakes that hit Nepal in April and May 2015, the country is gradually rebuilding itself. This article was written before the disaster.
