Bandipur and 2 Test Hikes
Our 5 hour bus ride ended at a wonderful guest house in the village of Bandipur. This small village provided us with 2 what I call 'test hikes'. We arrived around 4 in the afternoon and after picking out our rooms and slipping on our hiking shoes for the first time we were ready to hike to Gadhi, a hilltop ridge to partake in an awesome sunset.
|Heading out for our first hike.|
|Just a few more steps.|
|A few young guys from Ireland were trying their hardest|
to pitch a tent. Deborah and Shelly couldn't stand their agony.
So they jumped right in and pitched it for them!

The next morning we were back on the bus to travel 3 miles down the road to a trail head that would head us right back up to Bandipur with a short stop at Siddha Gufa, said to be the largest cave in Nepal.
|Easy start to a day long hike.|
|Our first excitement happened when John stepped back|
to take our pic and slipped over the edge.
|Can we hug this tree?|
|In side the cave.|
|We started at that river.|
