Mobile phone service again - here we are resting in Muktinath after crossing the Thorung La (5416m).

Nar-Phu was amazing - the entrance canyon between Yosemite-sized rock walls, abandoned ancient settlements, lots of Yaks (and good Yak curry with Dal Bhaat in the guest house at Nar). The Kang La (5306m) was good acclimatization for the Thorung La, making the latter seem easy in comparison. We had a bit of excitement when we heard and saw some rockfall on the descent of Kang La, but luckily it wasn't too close to us.

Lots of other trekkers on the main Annapurna circuit now, but there will probably be only a few in the upper Mustang (pronounced almost like "moose tongue" here). More updates to come when we get back to Jomsom!

-mark and ciel.
