– Saturday Bhandar to Sete
our goal is Sete- the longest, hardest and furthest yet……My legs are sore – we
made it, but I wish I would never have to hike ever again………………Man, this is
locals are amazing. We met a porter who carried a 100kg load – he himself
ascended 1050m today (about 3500 feet) on
some steep, steep trails with rocks and dirt and burnt forests – I have
never done anything like this before – nothing even close to comparing.
are staying along the trek with locals who provide shelter and food. Single
houses and little villages are only
connected by trails. The Nepali people are on those trails all the time,
carrying goods to the markets to sell. Young kids, old people, some barefoot or
in “flip flops” . The treks are shared with some tourists and their porters and
guides – not many carry their own shit and find their own way like we do…..
