Sian Pritchard-Jones and Bob Gibbons met in 1983, on a trek from Kashmir to Ladakh. Since then they have been leading and organising treks in the Alps, Nepal and the Sahara. They work in Kathmandu every winter and always relish returning to the Annapurna region, one of their favourite trekking haunts.
