|Days 9 & 10 of the trek|
|Day 9 : The friendly cook at MBC - we asked if he could show us how to make Tibetan bread - he oblidged. We had been eating Tibetan bread during our trek & liked it. So here's our chance to see it made - it tastes great with trekking honey! These cooks work magic with the limited resources they have up there.|
|A sneek peek beneath the table top in the dining hall at MBC. The blue object is a standard kerosene stove, lighted and placed underneath the table to warm our legs & hands. Campers are required to pay 20Rps for this luxury. We waited in the dining hall while waiting for our group of 3 to return from their excursion to ABC.|

|Walking through a recent minor landslide somewhere past Hinko cave, going towards Himalaya Hotel. Proceed with caution esp. during or after a downpour. These areas are prone to slides.|
|Ram and Subas taking their lunch during a brief stop. That's rice and "dal bhat" they're eating with dried chillies - an essential appetiser for them. Kim Ai seem to want a share of the food...|
|Day 10 : At Himalaya Hotel the morning after, preparing to leave for Chhomrong. There'll be a flight of stairs that we'll have to climb to reach Chhomrong. It's gonna take an hour of hard climbing for this - locals make the steps in half the time!||Mother combing her daughter's hair while the little one sleeps on the back of her elder sister. Family we came across on a brief drink stop just before reaching Sinuwa.|
- menu on a pillar! How convenient when it comes time to order.
Notice the bottled drinks in the pot at the table - that's how drinks are kept cold everywhere on the trek.
