Without a Guide: Trekking through the Himalayas, Pt. II

Ghorepani & Poon Hill, Nepal

We arrived at Ghorepani on the second day of our trek.  We visited a few teahouses before settling on one with a spectacular view (see below).  It was perhaps the most beautiful view I've ever had from a hotel room, and the cheapest, too.  

The third day of the trek was the most difficult, but also the most beautiful.  We rose at 4:45 a.m. in order to hike up Poon Hill, where we were afforded a breathtaking sunrise.  The mountains changed color as the sun rose, and the sky turned from slate gray to a deep indigo.
