One of the many valleys we crossed

This morning was a memorable one in this trek as we didn't had Dalbat for breakfast, I know it's hard to believe but chef made us an almost western style breakfast with two eggs any style and some jam and butter with two chapatis. The day itself was quite ordinary as we hiked the entire day along a gorge and didn't see anything special that day.

The guesthouse in Machha Kola doesn't have enough rooms to accomodate us all and so ends our day with setting up tents on a cliff from where we have a wonderfull view of the river below us and waterfalls on the other side the canyon feeding the river. The thundering sound of the river below has a soothing effect on me and wants me to do a little siesta just before supper. Joseph told me that the good thing about a little siesta before diner is that any siesta is a good siesta espacially when you wake up and chef has prepared a delicious pasta for diner.

During diner we discuss the iternary and find out that is is flawed because at the pace we're hiking it's not possible to have a full day of acclamatisation for Sarah and Brian just before the pass. We ask Chabibbi if it's possible to make more milage per day and we decide to go one town further than the iternary states. Sarah has an even more ambitiuous apirations as she wants to make it all the way to Tatopani which is the stop for the day after tomorrow, we do not decide against it but say that we'll see how far we get tomorrow.
