Langtang Valley

The next day Rebecca and I went into the Langtang valley towards the Langshisha Kharka mountain. We walked about 3 hours in and 3 hours out again. More or less it is flat – still somehow it does drain energy.

We did meet this guy, 2 yak shepherds and a Russian trekker.

Tranquillity in definition

I love the different colours of fall – but it must be amazing to be here in spring!

There are only a few yaks left up here – most of them are on the way down where the grass is still green.

Almost up – 4606 meters – and the clouds did come fast now. So only a short stop. And i had the room key – Rebecca is on the way down to take a shower – not good!

So i went down here and where you can see the path on the right i took a left down in the valley behind the mountain.

Down here

Hello world! Here i was happy again about my Meindl shit kicker boots. Snow, ice and loads of rocks to go down – not really the best if you where sneakers and are alone. All the way down i had to jump from rock to rock for about half an hour and another half to thick scrub.

The only living thing i saw in this valley – apart from a few birds and insects.

Up to 4326 meters

Only a few more meters up and we are at the last settlement in the valley. Our destination for the day.

Sunshine and mild temperatures – a great day for breakfast in front of the GH. Than it was time for another hike. Rebecca and me went up to a hill with some flags on it. Looks easy but above 3500 meters the air is thin and every step up i like 10 up down at 400 or so. Also we had not really time to aclimisate to the hight.

Clear sky and the white snow mountains – looks so close and still it is soooo far.

The last day we came up all the way here!

This is where we want to go tomorrow.

This is where i want to go later – another 400 meters up.

Only 4326 meters up but it looks like one can touch the sky. I could spend hours here – but clouds did come up the mountain so i had to get going. Actually they did not come up – they formed right in front of our eyes – only about 50 meters down from where we where. I never saw that – a birthplace of clouds. Great to experience – shit for pictures. And the clouds where sort of pinkish – nor really gray.
