Rainy road ahead, Chamje

From the Tibet Lhasa Hotel, Chamje


It had rained, complete with thunder and lightening, all night. There was a lot of water coming down off the mountains in streams, waterfalls and run off.


We were supposed to trek to Bagarchhap today, but had to turn back just past Tal because of bridge washouts and landslides on the section of the route on the other side of the Marsyangdi river. The landslides and engorged steams on our side of the river were frightening enough for me....


So we had an unscheduled stop at Tal - together with the previous two days' worth of trekkers, who'd turned back before us.


Quite an "exciting" day.
