Day 7 - Ngawal     In the Rain Shadow

Dry and windy Ngawal is within the upper part of the Manang district which is cut off from the full effect of the monsoon by the Annapurna Range. The people are yak herders, farmers, and traders depending on the season. Ngawal's ghompa is the white and orange building above the town. The whole community funds and helps to build their town's temples.
