Details of the day
After exiting Boghara through rice fields, the day’s walk took place almost exclusively in the forest. The path was fairly clear but that part of the trek was not necessarily be the most enjoyable because of the humidity and the impression that the forest did not ending.
During the day, you will have the opportunity to walk along a path carved into the rock and named “steep stone path” on the map of Nepa Maps. This passage is not a problem because the road is relatively wide. However in case of rain, it is possible that it becomes very slippery. Once this transition complete, we returned back into the forest. Then the way passed near a small isolated hut where we took the opportunity to had a rest and took a breakfast.
Once sated, we continued our walk in the forest. There was plenty of water and some passages were very muddy. We were happy to have a GoreTex lining our shoes which helped to keep our feet dry. After few hours, we reached a small clearing. It was then at Lapchi Kharka which is nothing but a cow barn. We did not linger and continue our trip.
Finally, we leaved the forest at 2700 m but it was only temporary because we will then descend. After 5-10 minutes of walking, we arrived at Dobang. This is not a village but a haven in the middle of a meadow. The price to put the tent was 100 Rupees per person. It was also possible to order food during the “tourist season”. To wash, we must walk up along the river because near the camp, the water was not so clear (dung, …).
