Day 5 - Peaceful Forest     The plains approaching Lower Pisang

Andrew Stevenson again:

The washed clothes hanging on my back-pack dry in no time in the arid climate. Other than the green fir and pine trees, everything else is brown, as I enter the rain-shadow of the Himalayas and a spectacular view of Annapurna II unfolds, lying south as I now approach the Tibetan border and plateau. I have wound my way through the Himalayas and entered into another world. In the distance the village of Upper Pisang strategically straddles the ridge of a hill, overlooking the desert-like valley.
