Our bus got stuck a couple of times, but luckily we where able to get it out. The scenery is stunning and very green. This morning we walked to Stoti Khola, just a there hour hike from Arugat. Here we arranged porters and Mules to carry our gear. It’s still a very long way to Manaslu Base Camp, since we only at 700 meters here; we actually descended from Kathamandu. Tomorrow we hike to Machhakohla at 869 meter, again not much higher in altitude, but a lot off up and down next to the Budhi Gandaki river.
