Tatopani To Ghorephani

on Tuesday, 27 April 2010

Today we were told we had a really long day, with about eight hours of trekking all up hill. We had to go up a couple of thousand metres. We first stopped in Sikarh which was where our group was separating, as Julie had three more days than us and needed to break up the remaining journey as to not get back too early. We stopped for lunch and said our goodbyes to Julie and Hari, her guide and then set of on another three hours uphill. The last hour was really hard work and I was again quite short of breath. I think because of how fast we had ascended. This was the first time we had been by ourselves since day two and so it was a  bit strange, just the three of us. We went to a local pool and snooker place and had a few games. We ended up drinking rum and coke as we could get a bottle of rum and a bottle of coke cheaper than a  single beer. We go to bed quite late even though we have to be up at 4:30am to go and see the sunrise from poon hill.
