    Did you realize… you are the “bright spot” in the first row?? But no worries, among all the crew you have the cutest hat!! #gobluehat

    How hard is the hike? (I know it’s such a general question but I want to know) Also what’s the biggest elevation you hiked up in one day? Do you actually carry O2 or any special supplies (other than regular hiking gears) with the crew? I guess the folks in the front row are the local guides – how did you find them?

      Thank you Rainie! You are so sweet #always

      The hike was long certain days (20-25 km) and strenuous only during inclines and ascends, but you feel good after that, accomplished. The highest elevation was at Thorung La Pass [5,416m/17,769ft] and we didn’t need O2 or special gear because it is fall in Nepal. The pass closes for trekking during the winter, I believe. The crew with two guides and six porters were very helpful, especially with organizing local accommodation and meals at the guest houses.
