September 23, 2012 - Khorlabensi to Jagat
No rooster! We almost overslept. After the best breakfast chapatti so far we were once again on our way. The deep valley did offer great views: more “Lord of the Rings” than “Avatar”. Green mountain sides, amazing waterfalls, long bridges as well as stairs and paths built of stone at least 100 years ago according to our guide. Fortunately, the deep valley offered shadow at least until lunch.
It is impressive to see the loads that the Nepali people carry on their backs: Women with beautiful, colorful dresses carrying big baskets filled with food, potatoes, crops, rice and on top of the load their children. Or men carrying among other things building material or mattresses while the donkeys carries gas tubes.
Yet another early arrival at tonight’s hotel: Buddi Gandaki gave us time to properly wash our sweat soaked clothes and watch the small children play with charcoal until their hands were all black.
