EBC Day 1

I’d actually popped some ibuprofen last night to get over the bus ride and I’m feeling great this morning. It appears that there are no other trekkers in town so after a quick cup of milk tea and a bowl of porridge I’m on my way. 

It’s cool when I leave town but after a few hundred meter the trail heads uphill and the layers start coming off. The first half of today’s trek heads to a small pass that used the be marked by an ancient Chorten but it seems to have been bulldozed in favour of a not so ancient cellphone tower. From there it’s all the way down again into a river canyon that leads to Shivalaya my destination for today. 

After Kathmandu it’s great to be able to breathe the air again and hear the birds singing in the trees.
