kbguy..trekking The Himalayan Montains
At the base, we changed mode of transport from jeep to horses. Each of us rode on a horse with two local gypsies as guide. It was a long journey but worth the trip. It took us about 3 hours to reached the top and return. The guide told us they had snow storm recently and the place was closed to visitors, and was reopen just two days ago. As such the place was covered with pure white snow all over. Even though it was cold and snow everywhere, we were trekking at an altitude closer to the sun on the Himalaya mountains. After an hour trekking, we can feel our skin burning. At the end of the day, our face looks more tanned and the nose, ears and lips area got sun burnt.,,, and backache.
