On the 2nd day of this fantastic 5 day trek I hiked through forests of rhododendrons on an easy traverse for 5 hours with some 10 minute ascents which finally led us to our snd nights lodge at 2400 mtrs, we began at 2150 at Deurali. On the 3rd day it was only 1 hour steep climb once again through beautiful alpine forests were we spotted monkey, Himalayan taar and yaks. We reached our next destination situated at 2950 after 3 hours of walking. The afternoon was spent resting, reading and writing in my diary and talking to our lodge owner. Day 4 began with brilliant weather another easy climb and traverse through forests. So far I have only come across 2 other tourists both individual trekkers like myself. After 2 hours I finally reaching the first ridge which afforded spectacular views looking down at Chomrong and the ABC trail. It as then another traverse and short ascents for the next 2 hours before arriving at our last camp at 3550 mtrs amazing views of Fishtail, Gangapurna Tent Peak Annapurna 1, Annapurna South, Himchuli Annapurna 3 and Mardi Himal. The following morning I awoke to a brilliant sunrise. The last day was a 2000mt descent to a village and civilization and electricity and local bus to Pokhara, hot shower, meal of fish form the lake and glass of red wine to celebrate another wonderful new experience. This trek can be extended form 5 days to 15 – I will definately return with a group.l
