 Okay it was only an hour but this is completely within our comfort levels!

 
Okay, okay, it was also mostly down hill as well but again within our comfort (and fitness) levels.

 
I was surprised by how much we enjoyed it. There was hardly anyone else around so it was very peaceful. 

 
Where we commenced was right up the top of a mountain where there is a temple, the elevation was 2,100 meters. Some people do the hour trek UP the mountain to visit the temple and we saw many youths trekking up the mountain wearing no shoes! You have to remove them at the temple so they just choose not to wear them at all.


The following two days we both suffered with very tired calve muscles... we almost felt 60, no 70.


Our guide Raju was telling us about this 12 day trek they do which goes to an elevation of 4,600 and how luxurious the camping can be... maybe not for us.
