Peakfinder: The Nar Phu Trek in Nepal

View of the Annapurnas descending from the Kang La pass
I had written earlier in my blog about the Peakfinder app which downloaded onto a phone allows you to identify the mountains from a database which you need to download. You dont need to be connected to the internet to use this app.

This year in October I used the Peakfinder app quite extensively on a South Col Trek to the Nar Phu valleys of Nepal and across the Kang la pass. The screenshots below give the names of the peaks as well as the location and altitude. I plan to do this from now on for all the treks we do so that a good database is available for future trekkers.
