Marphah, Nepal | 19 November, 2006 | $0.70
What a long day! From Muktinath we came back down the path past Kagbeni, past Jomsom and onward all the way to Marpha. Hiking more than seven hours was tough, but once we came down into the valley we were greeted by bright yellow trees that appeared stuning against the blue sky and white mountaintops. I only wish I had arrived in time to explore the town—we only snuck past the line of donkeys blocking the narrow path to our hotel in time to settle in around sunset.
