Day-7 1st Oct 2007: Nunthala (2200M) to Khari-Khola (2010M)

The next day was bright and sunny and we started out at 7:00AM after a hearty breakfast. Nunthala village looked pretty neat and beautiful with the Traksindu mountain backdrop (see pic left).   



Looking East across Shangrila's beautiful green lawn ....  the view showed many snow covered peaks in the distance

The trek was downhill from Nunthala and goes past terraced fileds and past Phuleli village (9:30AM) and then climbs steeply down to cross the Dudh Kosi river  on a long suspension bridge at 9:40AM 

Bhavnath crossing the 109M long suspension bridge over Dudh Kosi river

Dudh Kosi (at 1015M) from bridge

After crossing the bridge we turned left and stopped for tea. Then climbed steeply out of the river valley thru fields to reach the village of Juving  (1680M), at 10:30AM. Still climbing higher we reached the top of the ridge (at 2060M) where a Chorten marked the top of the pass. We stopped at  a Chokha teahouse here for lemon tea. Kharikhola could be seen from here (pic below) just 30mins walk downhill from here.  We reached Khari-Khola at 1:30PM

 Chorten marked the top of the pass at  a Chokha - 2060M

Typical Corn hanging arrangement outside a Khari-Khola Sherpa homes ...  and the trail looking back towards Choka ridge & chorten from where we came (click to enlarge and see chorten)
