Day 6 – Descending the Annapurna Range

Once again we awoke to amazing scenery and another day of clear blue skies which allowed for many more photographs. The buffalos thankfully didn’t cause too much chaos on the camp only leaving us a few gifts!

We wandered only for 30 minutes to visit the Annapurna conservation museum where we saw the history of the foundation of the Gurkhas. Then onto the village school of sikles where all the children lined up to meet us all just like reception children in the U.K. do in the playground. We had saved enough note pads, pencils, crayons, bouncy balls and whistles… all children at the school from 1-15 received a gift from us all, they were delighted and we were overwhelmed by their thankfulness. Off we went downwards, and downwards and downwards, steps and more steps and then the last suspension bridge over the river towards the last nights camp. We then headed up 400m via a wide tracked road passing a couple of trucks, cows and an army camp. We then came around the last corner to see the wonderful campsite set up over looking the other side of the river and a clear view of where we had set off from in the morning high up the other side 2500m where we are camping is at 1640m with yet another amazing view where all our tents are set up facing the mountains for our last sunrise tomorrow when we wake ready for our last day trekking…

Before dinner with a few sore legs in the camp the group decided on team stretching /Pilates. No better studio than the side of a mountain looking at the Annapurna range.

We were served our last supper on the trek, rice, goat meat curry and vegetables, just as all of the other meals prepared and cooked on site have all been superb… after supper we had a briefing about our last day and then we took the opportunity to say thank you to all the staff that have taken care of us, from Boda the owner of the tour company Snowy Horizons, his right hand men, Sherpas, camp managers, chefs and porters… all who were thankful of our generosity and we closed the night with a camp fire… good night
