Nepal XVI: the final part of trek around Manaslu

Published: 14.3.2012
The second day after leaving the five thousand high saddle, we considered as the most difficult part of the journey. It started with no breakfast, which almost could not eat. Apple pie was still quite good, but the pudding, which was to be involved and who brought us next to the bowl, it was almost inedible. Another course, chocolate pudding tasted like hot chocolate because it was not at all th

Milan finished what we didn´t want with Zuzka and he felt full. Zuzana ate porridge (tsampa the food made of flour), which was quite good when the sugar was added.  She was but a huge amount and so most had to leave uneaten there.


We went after eight o'clock. Initially we went about two hours, after more or less flat, to Darapani village. We parted with the Manaslu trek, because Darapani we should draw on the Annapurna trek, which we did. We came to the office, before which stood a large number of people who registered. Then we, along with the crowd of people went "Disneyland" with kitschy colour on hotels. Terrain then began to be very hilly with constant ups and downs. The road was covered in rocks and gravel, so we constantly had to watch his feet. Similarly, we podjíždělo and I slashed him once on the ground. We walked along the left side of the valley. On the other side workers roll the rock on the road. After a while it will be possible to reach by bus Darapani. We saw lots of monkeys in the trees. Beautifully and showed us just always hid when Milan took the camera to be rotated. It looked completely like they did it on purpose.


The final climb to the village Chyamche where we sleep, it was very steep. I went to a young Nepalese woman who ran from looking terribly heavy load. She walked just in slippers (which is quite normal here), and when she reached the top of the hill, you could see how she is terribly tired. I do not blame me, lily of the streams of sweat and I had loads likely to be much lighter than she is.


Accommodation at the hotel was almost European quality. True, we did not have the room facilities, but the shower is located on the hotel. It was not ideal, because it initially ran only cold water, and after correction alternated with hot water ice, but in her hair washed gave. And my hair really needed. The hotel has a large luxurious restaurant where we could settle down at ease, eat and drink. Sat there and a lot of people including a girl from the Czech Republic with her French boyfriend and his family.

Morning for a hearty breakfast we went over again, we had time running out. After lunch we walked to the road where we passed a large number of balcony. It was very hot. Along the way we stopped in a village that was not on our map, we have fed mango juice. In another village called Syange we crossed the bridge over the river and beyond it we sat down for lunch. Serving the Lord gave us the menu, but when we chose and wanted to order, we found that there actually almost none of this list do not. Finally, we put together an order. Lunch just finally boiled Hari. After lunch we returned to the road on the opposite shore, from which we came, but we went after the left bank, where we could go for a nice trail.


The path led up mostly, but it did not matter, because ran a beautiful river valley Marshyangdi. Tourists we met only sporadically. The landscape was mostly agricultural, with fields planted to rice. We have also seen a few trees full of monkeys. Apparently it was macaques. NepalMonkeys swinging on the branches close to the road and not afraid of us, so we are able to see the rest. Along the way, also grew a large number of giant bamboo heights and widths.

The final phase of today's route was quite steep climb about 300 vertical meters. We were sweating like mice, but we came out without stopping. Above the village of Bahun Danda we were ushered into the hotel where we could enjoy a hot shower. We ordered a feast for dinner made by - dipped (which is such a salty fried delicacy that can be done in several ways, for example cheese, vegetables, eggs, onions, etc.), roll snicker (snickers in batter) and bhat with chicken meat.

After a long time we're caught the coverage on our cell phones, we can notify you of our neighbour to the Czech Republic that we survived the trek in comfort. I've had with that little problem, because the way the phone was turned on and I didn’t know, and I was discharged battery. Charger with you I did not. Fortunately, there should be a small charge for about 100 rupees I charge the phone.


The last day we had to journey to the village of Bulbul, which was only fleeting. We walked slowly, the well-being, and enjoying the last views of the monkeys, buffaloes with sympathetic expressions on their faces and beautifully coloured butterflies. In one of the pass villages we enthusiastically bought bananas, which we have encountered for the first time in the saddle. The character of villages was different than at the beginning of the trek. There were a lot of shops mostly European-type of goods no longer even and the people didn’t wear traditionally Nepali. The bulbul we sitting around, eating and relaxing and spent the rest of the day and gone the next day early morning bus to Kathmandu. The way she ran away pretty quickly and without problems.


In Kathmandu, we had to take taxi to the hotel where we Hari gave extra money for his services. We were warned in advance that it does, but nobody told us how high the amount is to be. So we gave him 3000 rupees together. This way our journey to eight thousand high Mount of Manaslu finished, But not our travel around Nepal, because we were going to the next, only this time a two-day trek in the hills north of Kathmandu. Meanwhile, we have not had one day of rest and shopping in Kathmandu.
