6 5 Lunch At Yangle Kharka, Trek Past Nehe Kharka, And Through Forest Towards Riphuk Kharka [32 of 37]
Yangle Kharka (3600m) is a large meadow with some teahouses, where we had lunch. The Barun River valley becomes increasingly steep from Yangle Kharka, with waterfalls gushing down sheer rock faces on the sides of the river. The climb starts out gently from Yangle Kharka, and after just 35 minutes passes Nehe Kharka (3750m), a large, open, grassy plain on the opposite side of the Barun Khola. Beyond Nehe Kharka, the trail climbs above the river through a forest as the river makes a huge S-shaped curve and the walls rise almost vertically 1500 to 2000m above the river.
