Hike through the forest and on above the tree line and on up to from our high altitude camp at 4,200 m. from where there are the most amazing close quarters views of all. Now descending first through the forest, a different route takes us steeply down to the upper Modi Khola, Although remote and still away from all the much-used trekking routes, our expedition now takes on the moods of the warm valleys and the friendly villages. Here, as we make our way along the bank of the Modi Khola from the hill- side village of Landruk, down through the lovely fields, past the simple farms and over the interesting bridges, there is no doubt this indeed the idyllic Nepali countryside.
