NEPAL TREK FROM ULLERI TO GHOREPANI FOR POON HILL VIEW OF ANNAPURNA STEPS RAINFOREST RIVERS ALTITUDE

So we stopped for lunch at about, metres, lovely lunch actually maybe I ate too much to go hiking on and now the next part of the hike is still going up which is not quite so steeply but the terrain has changed quite dramatically here. We’re actually moving into rainforest, so it’s really strange, I’m sweating as you can see and really annoyingly, I left my hat at the lunch stop.

Huh, I’m not going back for my hat. It’s like, minutes back, and then up. No, no, no I’ve got my woolly hat so I’ll keep cold, I just don’t have my my cap, so bye cap, hope you make a nice friend somewhere there useful to someone.

Anyway, so yes, what was I saying? yes so, after lunch the terrain has changed quite dramatically and we’re going through rainforest apparently about an hour and a half hike through here. Now I can’t see them, but I can see water cascading down, down on that side. But it’s thick forest, rainforest.

Look at that, it’s quite different, quite beautiful, you can’t really see far because of the trees. The path has become a little bit easier because although it’s not steps, it’s sort of a, it’s like stones, laid out. It’s quite a gentle slope, so it’s, not as taxing on your calves and your thighs as before.

Temperature has also gone down quite a bit because sun’s not shining in this part, and the sun was cosy and warm at lunch, sat down after my good big lunch and a pot of tea and yeah could have easily gone to sleep. It was a close thing, it was very close but, but yes, managed to stir my stumps and get out here. Must take a big Chinese flag.

Namaste. Now he’s gonna get his drink in. And that’s how the supplies go up and down the mountain.

We’re now trekking through some beautiful wooded areas, look at this, it’s not quite the, tropical rainforest like it was earlier, but there’s still these amazing big trees. The river is running down beside us. We’re still going up, in fits and starts but it’s always up, sometimes a slight slope which is a relief sometimes steps, which I can see ahead but taking time.

Whoa, breathe it, the air is fresh and cold it’s getting cold. It’s middle afternoon, about half past two-ish temperatures down, out the sun but the temperature is hot in this sun and it’s beautiful. Let’s crack the whip, get up those stairs, do I have to? Sheepses These aren’t merino sheep, are they? Merino, yeah, because I could do with some new socks, merino make the best socks.

Hey guys, now if somebody knows what type of sheep these are, if they are merino sheep, please let me know. I’m not going to get closer, I don’t want to scare them, make them all run off down the cliff. Sheep herder won’t be happy with me.

Hi guys, can you give me some wool? Ha, and we made it to, Ghorepani, height. Is that or ? eight hundred, seventy four. Two thousand eight hundred and seventy four metres, no wonder it’s cold.

Although I’m sweating because of all the incredible hard work I’ve done, but welcome, I think we’re staying here the night? yeah the upper one, upper one. When he, when he says upper one, I hope he doesn’t mean like you know all the way up there, hopefully he means up there. Blue roof, That blue one at the top? Yeah.

Nearly there, nearly there he says, he said that you know three hours and five hundred steps ago, he said nearly there, we’re so close, five minutes. This man, this man here yeah, he is making me walk, miles and miles and miles high, metres up a mountain, so if I don’t make it back, he’s the one to find. So I, I made this trip not for only for me, for his fitness.

Oh yeah, I’m gonna get fit or get dead. It’s the last, leg of the day and yep you guessed it, steps. If I never see another step again, I should be quite happy but I’m not doing too bad, I don’t think I have any blisters.

I’m managing, at least I don’t have, a huge bottle of water on my back. All I gotta do is make it up the hill to the hotel and hot shower, ahhh cup of tea, ooohh, food and bed. Who wants it? come on.

I’m beginning to think that Nepal may hold the world record for the amount of steps. I feel like I’ve climbed them all, well apart from the one in front of me, which I’ve gotta climb. And we’re in room nine, okay, let’s go.

Ah let’s see what the room has to offer. Here we go, comfortable bed, thick duvet, the all important plug socket, there’s just one though. Okay, the bathroom, lets have a look at the bathroom oops, okay a shower that I hope has hot water, the toilet, not a squat toilet normal toilet and a basin, it’s all lovely and clean there we go, my home for tonight.

It’s recording, it’s out of control come on camera, what’s up with you? It wants to point to the sky, I know you want to point to the sky but I need you, to okay, back in a minute when I get control of the camera..
