To Yak Karka and the trekking path.

Scroll down the page for all images!

We decided to trek cross-country, to meet up with the trekking trail above Manang, rather than going back.
There was sufficient talk of a bridge over the river somewhere, and that it
was in good repair, so we forged our trail.

day, following a goat trail, sometimes coming upon an actual path
