We awoke to the spectacular sight of the Dhaulagiri massif- free of cloud as in the picture.
We set off at 8, leaving the team to clear away the camp and load the team off. We angled along the side of the valley a few hundred metres from the river both vertically and horizontally.

Passing through many villages, we're now camping in the grounds of the local primary school- and now have hundreds of smiling bashful little kids running around
