October 3, 2014 - Trek to Himalaya

Chromrong proved to be both the business center of the region as well as a perfect trekking destination with beautiful mountain views this morning, as well as nice accommodations and functional electricity.

We started the hike down into a valley, which we then climbed out of to Sinuwa. After a tea break, we trekked through the jungle, witnessing Longur monkeys playing in the treetops. We made our way to Bamboo for lunch, winning the award for being the most aptly named given the abundance of bamboo surrounding the village. We then climbed to our evening destination of Himalaya, at 2900 meters and half way to Annapurna Base Camp. After a satisfying dinner of fried noodles and chocolate pudding, spiced with ginger tea, we are ready for a good night sleep after a rigorous day on the trail.

T-1 day to the top!
