308 Nilgiri From Larjung, Prayer Wheels At Larjung And After Larjung, Donkey Train Near Kalopani [23 of 23]
UL Nilgiri Central (6940m) and Nilgiri South (6839m) across from Larjung. UR By the time I got to Khobang's twin-village of Larjung (2560m) the clouds totally covered Dhaulagiri. “The Sherpas took us by way of Larjung, no doubt so that they could spin the prayer-wheels” (Maurice Herzog, Annapurna). LL At the bend in the river between Larjung (2560m) and Kalopani (2530m) is the deepest gorge in the world. Annapurna I (8091m) and Dhaulagiri (8167m) are 35km apart on either side of the valley, while the bottom of the valley is at 2540m. LR: Donkey trains are a common feature on the west side of the Annapurna region and are used to ferry goods between the remote mountain villages.
