Manang (11,613 ft) to Yak Kharka (13,484 ft), 5 hours
Destination: Himalayan View Hotel
We woke up with a crystal clear day today with full sunshine! I ran up the terrace of our hotel, the stunning views of Annapurna 2,3,4, Gangapurna and Tilicho peaks were incredible!
We had a late start today, we took hot shower, as this probably was the last shower till we reached Muktinath. One last meal at Tilicho Hotel, had baked beans with toast for breakfast, I wasn’t sure if we were going to be getting tasty meals after this.
It was a beautiful and considerably warm day today, most of the trail was a gentle uphill. we stopped for a tea break and enjoyed stunning panoramic views from the terrace of the tea house.
After a few more hours of care-free walk, we reached to Yak Kharka. I actually saw Yak here for the first time in this trip.
We got to our tea house, and had lunch and took a nice nap in the sunroom, which was heated nicely.
Sun went behind the mountains by 4pm and the temperature made a sudden turn, it got cold and windy later.
Chef Kalpu took over the kitchen and made Khichdi today. Diner was delicious, piping hot khichdi, aloo curry and Bhindi subji hit the spot!!
