Day5
Trek to Dharapani or Bagarchhap
The trail nowstarts descending to the river and after crossing a suspension bridge, we begin climbing to Sattale (1550m.) on a path much steep that it will seem one slip may send you hurling down into the valley below. Then we continue on an undulating path above the river. Atone point, where a tributary flows in from the opposite bank, there the main river becomes covered with huge boulders that hide the water. We continue climbing the zigzag path to the top of the hill where you can see the leveled plain of Tal (1700m.).  Even though enclosed by cliffs, the level area looks reassuring after the harrowing mountain paths just traveled on. Now we descend to a green grassy river bank that leads to Tal with its hotels and teahouses. Here you will be stunned to watch and enjoy the exhilarating waterfalls. Beyond the Tal, the valley narrows down and the path now becomes high and winding and in several areas even hewn from the rock itself. Beyond the small beautiful village of Karte (1900m.), there is a little more cliff walking before the path drops again to the river. After crossing a suspension bridge and we climb the short distance to the stone Mani marking the entrance to Dharapani (1960m.).

We set off for Pisang with LamjungHimal (6893m) sparkling in the morning sun which will just melt your heart away. We then continue through green fresh fir and pine forest, climbing to a high, rocky area as the opposite bank becomes an impassable cliff. Marking this point, the valley becomes extremely steep-sided as you follow the path to Bhratang (2950m.). We keep walking through a pine forest and as the forest seems to end, the valley now changes from a V-shape to a gentle U-shape, opening up an amazing vista before you. You will see the east peak of stunning Annapurna II as well as Pisang Peak (6091m.) to the north-east. And finally we come to a long Mani wall by a bridge and the lower village of Pisang.

From the wide glazing plains of the SabjeKhola Valley, majestic Annapurna IV (7525m.) also can be seen. Just beyond this point we cross the considerably reduced flow of the MarshyangdiKhola though a wooden bridge to the tiny village of Mungji.
