27 April, 2013 - Trek to Pisang

We woke up to an unbelievably clear morning with crystal clear views of Annapurna II and Lamjung Himal.  Leaving the road behind the trail moved up through pine forests ultimately opening up to an incredible rock face that is difficult to describe.   Jeeps on the trail were exchanged for ponies.  We stopped for lunch in Dhikur Pokhari.  We passed a number of chortens and Mani walls on the way to Lower Pisang through some terrain that was at times steep and exposed.  Our hotel for the night is the Utse Hotel.  Jeff scored the single room with an in-room shower and hole (toilet).  We are hiking up to a monastery in Upper Pisang.  Our day will end at 10,700 feet.  Everyone is doing well. 

Happy birthday Sheila!
