Namaste Friends, Family & Loved Ones,
Greetings from Khote at just under 12,000 feet!
We descended from Khare this morning under sunny skies, with a constant but manageable breeze. The trail followed the Hinku River down valley and, other than the moving water and a handful of local people on the trail, there was stillness all around us. We soaked it in.
What a difference a 4,000 foot descent makes— thick air packed with oxygen, Swiss style potato rosti at our tea house, an actual shower with hot water. Even marinated olives from Trader Joes at teatime. It just doesn’t get any better.
Below are some pics from yesterday, including two summit shots.
Thanks for following!
