October 22, 2015 - Trek to Jagat

Today started early with a great breakfast and fantastic views while we ate .We headed towards Jagat  full of expectations as to what the day would hold for us.The trail/road followed along the river with a steady but slow incline.We saw lots of kids who happily greeted us with a smile and a 'Nemaste' We saw monkeys frolicking on a rock face which we found interesting.We were informed the monkeys eat everything in site so the farmers are forced to chase them off!Wandering through the rural area we saw creatures of every kind .Cows,mules,rabbits,goats ,lizards ,fish,many beautiful butterflies and birds of every size too numerous to mention.Colin can give you all the names ,but we did enjoy seeing them flying by.We took several breaks I think our guides were gauging our abilities. One of our group who we now refer to as Mom, was soon relieved of her pack and enjoyed a carefree walk in the mountains while her coherts struggled in the heat carrying heavy loads.This lack of a load seemed to give her more energy to ask How much further, and Oh I'm so hot .The guides were more than happy to assist including bringing her water bottle.We stopped for lunch and watched some kids playing an impromptu game of cricket. The traffic was becoming thinner as we travelled.As we ate a jeep left town carrying at last count 13 people.They bounced down the hill and we continued up.The sunshine was less severe and we enjoyed a bit of a respite from the heat. Several shortcuts or as we would call them "scrambles" kept our heart rates up and our brows dripping with sweat.We enjoyed seeing the local plants including the power variety. We soon rounded a bend to see our home for the night a welcome sight after a long but exhilarating day on the .trail
