When we start walking, Bachan informs us that we can get to Jomsom on the same day which makes us ahead of schedule (better known as “The Programme”). I am happy to hear that even though I am truly enjoying the trek. The scenery is very different from the earlier days. We are descending into a desert like valley floor, with some water currents here and there.

No villages or signs of life are in the surroundings except perhaps the cattle excrements along the way. We continue for 4 hours before arriving to Tukuche, an ancient Tibetan trading place where we eat. As soon as we leave the village, we go back into the desert, but this time with a fast wind blowing, pushing us to continue our itinerary. We arrive at Jomson at around 3 pm and the first thing that crosses our mind this time is to confirm our return ticket rather than having a hot shower. We are scheduled to fly the next day on the second flight, at 9:00 am.
