Vertical Nepal: Gowa
Today we journeyed from Tal and walked over 22,887 steps up to 2515 meters, leaving the banana trees behind and entering into evergreens.
The trail winded through quaint, colorful villages where we were met with locals drying peppers and spices, herding goats, and offering us warm greetings with big smiles. We’ve just arrived into the village of Gowa.
In our tea house for the evening we are sipping milk tea and awaiting momos (the traditional dumpling/pot sticker of Nepal). The team is in great spirits and are planning to hit the sack early in preparation for the long push tomorrow up to the village of Bimthang, set at 3590 meters.
