106 Lunch At Tangdung Khola  [6 of 23]

We arrived at our lunch spot next to the Tangdung Khola (2450m) at 10:40, 3 hours from Lete. “We now took a path along the side of the cliff and after a steep descent found ourselves suddenly beside the Chadziou Khola” (Maurice Herzog, Annapurna). The porters rolled out a tent sleeping bag sheet on the ground out of the sun, and I rested as they busily made lunch: hot orange Tang, French fries, coleslaw, yak cheese and puri (bloated deep fried bread). What did the boys have, you ask? Why dhal bhat of course. They have it twice a day - lunch and dinner. Lunch was over at 12:15.
