Whilst in Manang we got a bit of a fright as an Israeli guy staying in our guest house had to be rescued by a helicopter, as he was not recovering from altitude sickness.
We were hoping to stay only two nights but Charlie caught a bacterial infection and then mountain sickness. So after 5 very boring nights and 4 visits to the Himalayan Rescue Association we finally made it out of Manang with a rather weakened Charlie.

The doctor advised us to take it very slow when climbing any higher, so we only climbed 300m and spent 2 hours walking to Gunsang. We did meet another German couple called Frank and Verra who had also spent 5 nights in Manang due to sickness and we complete the journey with them.
