This is Trini and Shawn from Singapore. Shawn made a marriage proposal to Trini under water when they swam with the sharks somewhere in warm seas. A year ago the guys found me and offered to make a pre-wedding photo shoot on Annapurna Base Camp in Himalayas. The place, which is located of 4130m altitude between the sacred mountain Machapuchare (6998) and Annapurna (8091m) – one of the highest peaks of the world. Of course I was very happy to be a part of this crazy idea.
So, for 6 days we had to walk about 80 km, with altitude changed from 1300m to 4130m…
This is the end of our first day route – Trini shows the top of the hill with a place calls Chomrong. One of the most difficult part with a lot of stone steps “Stairway to Heaven”, which is so fond of Nepal mountains.
Actually the guys never been in any mountains before. So I tried to explain them how difficult it will be for us and it worked – Trini start to run for half a year before trekking. As a result, the guys made it perfectly – very good for the first time.
Finally on Annapurna Base Camp. The temperature is about 0°C.

Hi very nice shoots!
I just wondering when was the pictures taken? It looks warm and the couple wearing just a windbreaker.
I am planning on going to Annapurna in May this year, so the information about the weather will be nice.
Hi Wong, it was taken in the begin of November. May is also good, but sky can be not so clear. May be you will find some useful info in my note about trekking organisation: https://your-photography.com/blog/annapurna-base-camp-trek/
