Never Stop Exploring – Annapurna Circuit Trek Day 8

After the high of Lake Tilicho, we got to descend a bit. Not much but still it was nice to go downhill through beautiful sights.

This was the view that greet us early in the morning before we start our journey for the day.

Our hike for the day or at least for the first part of the day was through open grounds with not much climb.

But we had to cross back the landslide area again. This is the view from the top where we had climb up the previously.

Our journey took us through some colorful plants. Interesting since this is not autumn or is it?

More of the colorful plants all over the place.

And then we came to this abandoned settlement at Upper Khangsar. 

Everyone especially the ladies were very happy to reach this place because this was like the only area that was not so open and the ladies all rushed to the abandoned buildings to let go. Hahaha

Another view of the settlement with the stone wall around it. Like a mini great wall of China.

More ridge walking. Not as scary as it look and definitely easier than the route up to Tilicho.The view in front of us as we near Yak Kharka, our destination for the dayThe mountain in front of us. Beautiful but lucky we are not scaling that.And finally crossing the Thorung Khola to Yak Kharka.

18 km today. 9 and a half hour. One of the longest but definitely not tough day.
