Today we hiked from Jomsom to Kalapani. Around 10:30 we stopped in a place called Tukuche and I had the best apple pie on the Circuit in a genuine Dutch Bakery! Simply delicious – with a cup of real coffee!!!!!
The hiking again went well today.Unfortunately we have been hiking in a perpetual haze for the last few days, so not much in the way of views. The mountains are all around us, we just can’t see them.
I expect to be back in Pokhara late afternoon on May 3rd; so yes that is 3 days faster than the original schedule, but it is the way I want to do it. I don’t need to arrive in every place at noon and walk around for an hour and then do nothing for the rest of the day.That way I will have a couple of rest days in Pokhara (and hopefully I will get a call from Stephen on the 6th!!), and I will then fly to Kathmandu a bit earlier and actually get to see some of the place other than Thamel.
