At the top of Langtang Moutain!

The wider views of the surrounding snow peaks made me feel more calm. We're at Kyanjen Gompa. But it's not the highest point. The peak is above where's famous for its sunset views of the Annapurna. Ale would like to climb up. One woman we met there told us it's nice to go up but be careful. Even it's not more than one hour to go but it's steep. I was hesitated then decided not to go :P ... Ale told me tomorrow he would do it but later it's snowing a lot so he couldn't make it.  

Here, Ratna hasn't booked a hotel for us so the one he thought we could stay was already full. It's full because there is an only guesthouse that has electric city.

Lovely Guesthouse
Many tourists stayed there. We searched for others, then found a lovely one nearby. The name of it is Lovely Guest House :) A Nepali couple with two kids are the owner. I think they are not older than me. Ale was joking their kids that are they from other world? You would agree if you see them. The kids never smile. 

Maybe they are scared or maybe it's too cold to smile! But actually this family is nice. Their guesthouse was just rebuilt by the husband. The room in the guesthouses are made by wood, thin wood. Can't protect the cold. We slept with only one blanket, torture. Because I don't have the suitable clothes, socks, gloves to wear.  And on the last day up there, it had snow!!!!!!

First time that I saw the moutains were covering by snow.

It's really fascinating to me. Maybe it's not as same as European moutains but as the way it is, it's charming by itself. I really really really fall in love with it. Lucky that I decided to continue until the last day! Thanks New that you are not too weak to see the other beautiful side of the world.

Another thing that I like is the Cheese Factory. We went to two of them to see how they make the yak cheese. I have tasted it, nice. First time that I've seen Yaks so close. The  The original one is at here. The new one is at Langtang Valley. I prefer the new one, the owner said Japanese guy (tourists) came here and taught him how to do cheese. Then they built the factory for him. Really nice, isn't it? 

When we passed Samba's house, his kids were so happy to meet him again after 7 days.

At that time, some people just arrived so Samba asked us if he could say good bye now to take care of other tourists? But his 10 years old daughter will carry Ale's backpack to Syabru Bensi instead.

NO WAY!

I thought, if Ale lets his daughter carry it, I'd kick him! But ok he didn't! Right, how could 10 years old girl carry that backpack!? No way! She tried to do it because she wanted her father stay but we insisted NO!! Samba told us, don't worry - she's strong!! No way!!!

Ale told him that he could carry by himself, it's ok, don't worry. But when we were leaving, Samba changed his mind and sent us off down there to take the bus. 

8 days trekking's finish now. Started with two, Ale and I, then got more friends - Ratna and Samba.

Samba Family :) Lovely!
Many seasons during the trek from hottest to coldest. Not only about the weather that has been changed, but also the mind. :) As some people said Trekking will let you know and understand your companion more. Sometimes it's much more to prove "if that one could be your friend for life"?

For me .. 8 days are not enough but at least i have learned something… When you fell down, who held your hands?, When you got a wound, who gave you a medicine?, When you're tired, who waited for you?, When you had a bad day, who was by yourside to listen to? And many many more … Trekking gave me more than excercise. It also gave me a smile, laugh, cry, happiness and … wow!

Tired, yes. But i’m happy to be tired again
