    Day 6 Kagbeni to Jharkot

    June 13, 2018 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    We left Kagbeni this morning after a yummy Tsampa porridge breakfast and followed the river upstream. We were about to head back to the road when we came across a family herding mountain goats who showed us part of the way, we saw one of their tiny day of goats and the had to climb up from the river to the road side. We were met with newly tarred road, which was odd but made for easier walking. The view was nothing short of spectacular, with huge mountain peaks all around. The road is tarred as the are a huge number of jeeps heading up to Muktinath, a holy pillgramage site for Hindus. So much of their tourism over the past 10 years has moved from trekking to Nepalese and Indian pillgrams. Lila managed to do some walking to a nice view point and we were lucky to catch a lift on the back of a tractor and then walked to what we thought was our next destination, however was the village before. We decided to rest here for the night and rethought whether we would aim for Muktinath, as this was quite an amazing old village.Read more
