Upper Pisang

Thursday 15.4.2010 Chame - Upper Pisang (Day 5)

On a way from Chame to Upper Pisang
It's new years day today, year 2067 in Nepal. There are big events in Chame today, but we need to trek further and won't be participating new years parties. The morning is a bit chilly but warms up soon, when sun is starting to shine. First two hours we follow the river to Bhratang village and continue upwards until we reach 3100 meters altitude and stop for a lunch at midday. The day is beautiful with sunshine and sky with no clouds.

Coming to Upper Pisang village

We'll arrive to Upper Pisang early and I'll wash my dirty trekking clothes after shower. The Marsyangdi lodge is the best lodge so far and it has very friendly owners. During the evening we climb to the Gompa still a bit higher, from where there's a beautiful views to Annapurna II and Annapurna IV.
