In the early fog, we launched our second stage, which led us to the village of Khola Beshi. We took a break in order to strengthen us, while the cute residents are strengthening at our luggage. Terasses are created for agriculture, especially to produce potatoes, rice and various vegetables. In the winding corners of the Himalayan rocks are hiding these eight-legged companions that can be attracted by a trick out of their dens. Until here we followed the road passable for jeeps. It slowly but surely digs into the himalayan mountains. From here, the road becomes a narrow path, that forgives no error. The way leads into the Buri Gandaki river. It is hardly filled with water in this season, which changes dramatically during the monsoon period. In Khola Beshi we found a lodge, unexpectedly offering local coffee. A single tree provides this exotic surprise that is collected, roasted and ground by hand.
