A long day

Finally we were all feeling good. Lena was determined for us to make up for lost time. It was a long day of walking as we tried to get to Dharapani. In the end we stopped at Karte, about 30 minutes short of Dharapani. We’d made up two and a half hours, which was very good going. Attempts to connect with local people and do more filming were on hold for the time being.

An awesome early morning scene with our first glimpse of snow-capped peaks. Our first clear sky day after a thunderstorm the afternoon/evening before.

We'd had a steep climb up beside a massive landslide and then came to this stunning view of the plain of Tal. We ended our long day when we came to another small village, Karte
