More news from the Himalaya. Today I am back on 3 solid local style meals a day and have rested today and feel ready to do the trek tomorrow. The walk is 36 kms over 3 days and two nights from 2150 M up to
the lake and mountain base at 4000 m and back .
I have walked a lot above 2000 M elevation this week despite my bad tummy, & this will be in my favour. I have hired two porters and a guide and a jeep to take us to the trail head tomorrow and 14 kms back to town on Sunday so I only have to carry water, 1kg trail mix which I brought from home ! and my camera and film. I was using the digital camera but the battery has run out so I am using my film camera here for the trek and henceforth.
It is really vast and spectacular here just sitting and/or writing my travel diary or painting or reading on the hotel roof looking out across the valley at mountains that are 5500 M+ high.It snowed on the peaks the other night so they now look great.
