24 April, 2013 - Trek to Chyamche

Today was hot and a little more strenuous.  We walked along the contour lines high above a roaring mountain stream that we crossed just before lunch on a bouncing suspension bridge.  So far we have only had glimpses of the snow covered Himalayas, and we’re all looking forward to getting higher where it will be cooler.  We’re finding the teahouses a step up from those that we experienced in the Kumbu area on previous trips.  We seem to be passing through more mountain villages and have had an opportunity to get closer to the people who, so far are primarily hindu.  We encountered a wedding procession along the trail today complete with blaring horns, drums, and clanging cymbals.
