staring into Mustang…..

Pretty cold. The mountains of Mustang behind us.

Pretty cold. The mountains of Mustang behind us.

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!
