It was such a refreshing change to be so well looked after on our trek – to never have to worry about having enough food or supplies of fresh water. It was particulary nice to receive some delicious hot chips on a cold day in Phedang and quite an achievement in the middle of nowhere, thanks Pem Ba! Our guide Kungzang was great company and very knowledgeable. Even the dzos were relatively friendly although that may be because they wanted to share our breakfast – I saw Dongzi licking his lips whilst watching us eat our porridge.
The scenery was spectacular and there was a myriad of stars overhead at Dzongri in the middle of the night…I don’t think I have ever seen the Milky Way so clearly!
We saw lots of wildlife such as the Himalayan Monal, Blood Pheasant, Fire Tailed Sunbird and Indian Cuckoo.
Please pass on our thanks to all involved. Hope that you are all well and we wish you the best for the future.
