(rest day)

Last day in Kathmandu. Brunch with Kenda Cunningham (HKI) at expat farmers market in Patan.

Time to chill out and reflect on our trek. An amazing experience with a level of cultural immersion that we could never have achieved on our own without local knowledge and language skills. However, some aspects of Tim's attitude and behaviour were challenging:

* Inconsistency in planning/communication
* Disregard for established guidance on AMS
* Disregard for the environment (OK to drop litter/light fires in wild areas/shit near rivers)

All valuable experience for me as a leader!

Walking 2:00:00 [1]

Early start to get to Thiwa (45 mins) where we had hoped to catch a jeep but all we got was hassle and no jeep. After an hour spent trying we decided to walk on to Sinwa. Final dal bhat lunch while waiting for jeep.
2 PM


Jeep from Sinwa to Taplejung on very poor road. After some food a much nicer private jeep took us to Ilam (5+ hours). I enjoyed seeing the landscape change and village life after dark. Late arrival at hotel and disappointing to find the showers were stone cold.

Lungthung to Chiruwa with lunch stop at Phembu. Lovely morning again very beautiful. After lunch we joined the base camp trail and the people were noticeably less friendly. They see many more trekkers.

Olangchun Gola to Lungthung with lunch stop at Ildanda. A really stunning day with steep exposed trails and lush forest. Two very good dal bhats in permaculture paradise. Cardomon, squash, black tomatoes and other vegetables growing in abundance with irrigation systems.
