I'm only just above sea-level, Al - no altitude sickness to slow me down!  ;)


By the way, Folks- please remember Alan's reports in the form on his Darchula Trip:

Ok its been a while since I posted anything. So these next few images are from when we dropped from 4534m (14800ft) at the Jangla Bhanjang to Beluwa at 2334m (7650ft) and the Thuli Bheri Nadi river. The drop into Dolpa district meant we were now in the markedly drier Transhimalaya.

We followed the Thuli Bheri nadi until we met confluence with the Suli gad which marked the beginning for the Phoksumdo National park.

As I said in the report the inital bit of the national park is really trashed. However once you reach the treeline the mix forest was something special, huge old specimens Cupressus tortuosa.
