Trek starting  

After breakfast at 7 a clock, we were picked up by Tendi , and set off for Sunderijal.  We met our cook and porters who were joining us for the 5-day camping trekking, in the Helambu area,  75 km north of Kathamndu.  The trail started with a quite steep ascent, passing by small villages. We entered the  Sibapuri  National park. The trail continued through the Rhododendron forest, with some flowers still in bloom, dropping the red petals on the path.  We also saw beautiful butterflies, and an eagle seeking for prey. We stopped for a lunchbreak and the cook prepared a nice meal for us, which we enjoyed sitting in the sun.  After lunch, the trail continued upwards until we reached the deurali (the highest pass) at 2400 meters.   When we passed the deurali,  the veiw of the Nuwakot district village opened up beneath us, and we descended to our night camp in Chisapani. We have had sunny and hot weather, and now we just finished this lovely day with a superb Nepalese dinner.
