October 25, 2015 - Trek to Pisang

This was our fourth full trekking day. We have made it to Altitude (3200 m) @ lower Pisang, Manang District. We have already had  some fantastic views of Annapurnna IV III II. Also Manasulo. Our day started with children on the street posing for their pix.  Later we saw traditional plowing with cattle and later tractors with three point cultivators. This is apple country.  Many cyclists on the trail/road today. Lots of evidence of Buddist influence along with Gompa /temple and monks. We saw  God's house ( a breakdown formation on the ridge line of an unnamed mountain)  and the legend has it that when his dog barks when someone dies down below.   We came through a dry wide valley (Equivalent to Peach land BC)  where we saw Buck wheat being harvested. The children along the  way were very excited to perform for candy.
