Where I Slept: Ghorepani, Nepal

Sixth night on my trek - Ghorepani, Nepal

Ghorepani, Nepal | 22 November, 2006 | $0.69

Day six of the Jomsom Trek was the day I was dreading, the day when I spent more than eight hours climbing up hard stone steps. We were entertained along the way by schoolchildren heading to class and locals carrying heavy loads with ease. I met up with all of the other hikers, including the couple from Colorado who carried their own full packs, at lunch where we all sat around exhausted.

This hotel was a ramshackle place with twisting, narrow hallways and plywood walls. I managed to get to the shower relatively early, ensuring myself some of the last solar-heated water.
