Yesterday the Adventures Global team flew the 200 kilometres to Pokhara (see pic). From there they were transported by bus to the trail head at Nayapul where they crossed the Modi Khola to Birethanti, a prosperous, bustling town at 1065 metres above sea level.
They then followed the Bhurungdi Khola, climbing steadily to reach Tikedungha at 1480 metres.
Today they reach the village of Ulleri, then climb up to Banthanti at 2250 metres. After passing through magnificent oak and rhododendron forests, they will eventually reach Deorali, at 2834 metres. Quite a climb!
