When we awoke, we ate, drank, ate, drank, resisted the urge to walk but did go to get a closer view of the beehive that was attached to a rock across the stream. They pointed, we took photos, but couldn't see it - that which named our Guest House 'Beehive'. The settlement spread out to include a number of dwellings & shelters, one of which loosely houses goat-kids & chickens. Having raised goats ourselves, we had a few cuddles of the kids & enjoyed their antics. We met some American ladies & their porter, who recommended a local, Tej, to carry our bags & protect us on the way to Tadapani.
The trekking path went through the centre of our guest house, as it did through many guest houses.
As opposed to so many trekkers going past us on previous days, I was surprised at the lack of passing traffic through Kyumi. You couldn't go around it, so I guess everyone else went the Annapurna trail, or maybe they stayed longer in Landruk.
We obviously stayed the night in the Beehive Guest House & left as early as possible the next day. We usually asked for an early start & they always agreed, but it was rare to actually leave before about 8am while we waited for our 6am breakfast.
