Seeing Som’s photo made me remember my last trek in Nepal in lower Mustang. It was a family and friends trek, eight of us, aged from 15 to 54! We didn’t see any snow leopards but had a great time despite sore muscles and some intergenerational challenges. The younger ones wanted to start each day at 11 am instead of 8 am – I could see their point, they nearly ran up the mountains…while we oldies slogged and slogged. But we were in Maoist territory – together we would go!
