So we left motorized transportation behind and began walking. We would walk every day for four weeks.

The lower valleys were very smoky, especially in the afternoons, due to forest fires below Lukla. We walked through villages, past fields being tilled and planted, and past chortens of Mani stones, engraved with the Buddhist prayers.

It is not a wilderness experience; there are villages as high as 16,000 ft.
