Asia | Nepal | Western Hills | Annapurna Mountain Range – 2300m-Danaguey: view of an 8000 peak
Really hard day today, even though we didn’t walk for very long.
My legs (yes I know, I am talking again about my legs – you should understand that while trekking, even though you have the most marvellous and philosophical thinking patterns while walking, concretely your world evolves around 3 things: your legs/feet, food and mountains. So please forgive me if I get carried away a bit in my writings with either of these) were terribly tired getting up to Dharepani and it was good that I thought that this was going to be our final stop for the day.
However, after a coke (decided I deserved one) and some rest, decided to push a little further to Danaguey and in doing so, avoiding a too long day tomorrow to Chame.
After the seemingly endless first part of the hike, I even started to enjoy the walking again on the last part.
We saw our first real mountains today, Manaslu, a towering snowcapped peak of some 8125m high…pretty impressive.
Staying at the New Tibetan Guesthouse we had a perfectly quiet afternoon as Amore had recommanded one of the other guesthouses to ‘The Group’ (sorry guys 😉 ). After paying them a short visit, we spent the afternoon talking to 2 geologists about the Himalayas – amazing and fascinating, you start looking at the rocks around you with another eye.
Got Mike also talking about Myanmar and I am looking forward to going there after his stories!
Off to bed early again, hoping my legs will do better tomorrow…
