From the Basecamp it took 4 days to get back into civilization. To describe the first day only one word is needed: downhill. Well it started with the sunrise but it sadly was a little cloudy still one or two nice pictures came out. But afterwards almost 2000m down from 4200m to 2200m… to a place called Bamoboo. We had to go back the same way we came up. More and more clouds moved in and it started to rain (in the basecamp it was snowing, but we were to low for snow). Luckyly we were going towards the good weather :).

Until Chomrong where we had lunch the next day, the path was exactly the same, but from Chomrong we went South-East to get to one of the highlights – the Jhinu Hot springs. That was amazing. By the river in the valley two little pools were filled with warm water – lovely. Also a family of monkeys was playing very close. The last 2 days (Pothana and Phedi) you could feel that you were not far from the civilization. The Lodges were quite nice and had good food. Also a lot of agriculture (rice) which was a nice contrast to the mountains.

And finally back into the dirty and noisy life of Pokhara – for me sadly just 1 afternoon (Pokhara is not that bad, just a shock after all the nature) . I had to rush to see at least a little bit of the Pewa lake. A lot of locals were at the shores, try to rent boats or fishing. In the evening our group had the last beer at the Bee Bar. They had German Footbal on television – it was snowing in late Oktober… Good that I was far far away 😉

The next morning I took a Taxi to the airport. After a very intense security check (A look and the question: „Do you have a knife“) and the run to the Airplane (I run faster than some Japanese…) I had a nice seat in the Yeti Airlines – Jetstream propeller plane and an amazing 20 Minute flight back to Kathmandu. A couple of hours later I was again in an Airplane, now with Air India (after a stupid security check that delayed the plane for 1hour). This flight was also amazing, the picture from the Airplane shows the Annapurna Area. Fishtail is the mountain to the right, the Mountains left are Annapurna South in the Front and Annapurna 1 very left. The view was just great, and then a nice sunset… and suddenly I was in India. But this will be the next blog entry.
