Alto Himal

Here we are in the high mountains again. The picture shows Machhapuchhre towering over the Modi Khola valley, which we will follow up to Annapurna Base Camp.

The other day at Tolka we stopped for lunch at a nice woman's restaurant, and saw a falcon swoop down and pick off one of her chicks. After that she put the rest of the chicks in their cage - they didn't argue, they wanted back in quick!

Cherry trees are in bloom here, even though it's autumn.

Today we took it easy - soaked in the hot spring below Jhinu before climbing the stone steps up to Chomrong.

We're still at relatively low altitude - 2170m - but by the time we get to ABC we add another 2000m. A couple of Danish girls we met said they had a hard time sleeping up there because of the cold and altitude. Glad we brought our warm sleeping bags!
