It is All Downhill from Here
Starting at 11,000' and ending back in Nangi at 7200' was classified as a difficult 4 to 5 hour hike. No problem for me. It was like what I am used to here in the Rockies. We started above tree line so the first part was rolling grassy fields. Yes, steep with narrow paths. But a stroll just the same. We even walked through a small area where there once was a forrest fire. That is a very rare sight here in Nepal. And I do not have any pictures of it. I suppose all my friends are right when they claim all I see is the beauty in the world.
|Note this unusual mount. It is like a wave of dirt!|
|Where did the path go? Who cares, just walk downhill!|

her backpack and the puppet was saved.
|Meeting up with the porters who were always way ahead.|
|A well deserved "lay down" after lunch.|
|Just before we arrived back in Nangi we came across this incredible tree just covered with purple flowers.|
|Chandra picked one off to show us up close. This flower is a type of orchid|
that attaches itself to a tree, any tree it picks, just like a staghorn fern. Then
he placed it back on the tree.
