It is on the hills over there, I don’t know if you can see behind me? So it’s slowly creeping around but when you’re in these valleys surrounded by such high mountains, it takes a little while for the sun to get here. So it’s a cool degrees, but I am in short sleeves because it’s hot walking. I’m at this place at the waterfalls which I took you to last night and I have ahead of me, a bit that I’m sort of dreading, you see these steps? here well, there’s, of them,, of those steps I have to go up just after breakfast.

I’m not even sure if I’ve warmed up for the day. I’m standing on this, one of these suspension bridges, talking to you guys but I’m not sure if I’m stalling or not, yeah maybe I’ll look at this beautiful waterfall, wait for the sun to come up, rather than face those, steps. Oh my goodness.

I think my knees are starting to ache and I haven’t even started. But okay enough of the chit-chat, let’s go and tackle it. Let’s go come on, I can do it, can you? Let’s give it a try.

Four thousand steps you say and is there a lift? escalator? No. Donkey? You use your, just good old fashioned legs. Yeah.

Haven’t had my breakfast down yet, let’s go. Every corner I go around, there’s more stairs. Just a warning anybody, traveling, thinking of doing this hike, these hills up, sorry these mountains are big, oh a level spot oh, oh, luxury.

And how about that for a view? There is Annapurna, that’s where we’re heading, to the bottom of that hill. I know it seems like we’re going the wrong direction but trust me even though this is steep, this is the least steep route there and she’s looking beautiful. Way to Ulleri, five minutes.

I can only hope that I am heading to Ulleri. And then it’s lunch or tea stop in five minutes. Good morning Hi, good morning.

How’s the trek so far? All good. Are your guests behaving or do they stop and take too many photographs? I am, where are we at the moment? We are near Ulleri village, Ulleri, what’s Ulleri, a village or? Yeah it’s a small village. We stop there for tea? we stop there for tea.

I see, I was hoping so. A hot cup of tea waiting there, excellent, yeah, and we’ve just gone up. How many steps have we been up? Oh, we already done about,, stairs.

That makes the last sound not so bad. Yeah. Okay.

So after Ulleri, it’s still up but gradually. Gradually, so we’ve done the worst bit? This part is the worst part, oh that’s good. I’m glad to hear that, my legs are glad to hear that.

Okay. Okay, we said only steps, at least steps ago, but we are at, a village. If I had any breath left I’d pronounce for you.

There, have a look what state I’m in, see I’m still here, still breathing, heavily. My legs are still working, it’s definitely the toughest day so far. You just got to get your head down and keep going.

It’s not difficult, it’s just, uphill all the way. You can stop and admire the view on the way when you catch your breath, because it is beautiful, breath taking. And yeah, sorry if I’m, so unclear on this and I’m sorry if bits of this are a bit short because my camera struggled to get my battery’s charged last night.

I did get them charged, so I’m trying to be conservative, with my post and photographs so I can manage the whole trip. This is only my second day, of eight actual trekking days, so and while we’re on that, you’ll notice I’m now starting to sport a healthy beard. I didn’t bring a razor with me, also, my hair is growing.

So, if you don’t like beards I’m very sorry, you’re gonna have to get used to me growing a beard, fuller and fuller, whoop oops, the next few days but what I plan to do, when I get somewhere, is to visit one of those barber and shave shops. Get a clean shave and a haircut, so you can see the transformation. Okay, we’re on to cafes but I’ve still gotta get further.

Are you enjoying your hike chick? No idea of the price, but they know how to tempt you on a hike of that fruit, drinks, nuts, chocolate, Whoa and safe drinking water. Are you tempted? I am, but I’m saying no, I am saying no, and I’m carrying on because I’ve already got chocolate bars that I bought down the mountain but it’s very tempting. Well we had a tea break at the top of the, steps, I’m sure it was well more than,.

Very refreshing and a beautiful view of the Annapurna Peaks, it was really lovely. if I haven’t shown you before, here’s a time when you have a look. And then thinking it was all the steps over then proceeded for another half an hour of more steps, now the path is still upward sloping, but not steps.

Oh, and I look ahead and there’s more steps unbelievable. Okay, when I next go to the gym, oops sorry about that, I’m completely losing control of the camera, hold on, hold on, there we go got control again. Okay when I next go to the gym, I’m not going anywhere near any steps.

No way, sorry about that but one question does come to mind, I mean I’m complaining about walking all these steps because it hurts my legs but somebody built all these, can you imagine the time and energy it took to build all these, I mean really. We’re talking stone steps, up the side of a mountain, we’re now in excess of, metres high. So, thank you for the people, possibly spent years, building all these steps, so that I, can enjoy the natural beauty, of Nepal.

Look at them, they’re full of energy, they should go up to the top again. Namaste. Hi, Namaste.

Which is the cheapest price? I will tell you, this is, yacon and this is. Today is chicken fried noodle and guess what? He’s having Dal Baht, it always fills him up, okay and of course I’ve got my tea and no meal here will be complete without, a beautiful view. Oh, you’re going round me right? Just.

It’s like the traffic in New Delhi. Oh mind me toes..
