The chorten  was built in 15th century for worship only. The top of the pagoda is made of copper heavily gilded with gold. On the last day of the travel we drive along the shore of Yamdrok-lake known as “Turquoise Lake.”  The road gradually climbs up to 4786 meter Kamba-la (pass) and descends to the valley. The drive from the floor of the valley is spectacular all along the bank of Brahmaputra river, past yak skin boat and giant carved Buddha, through Tibetan villages and then into the valley that leads to Lhasa.

Most of Tibet, including Lhasa, is at an elevation of more than 3658 meter (12000 feet). The sight of pilgrims prostrating themselves in front of Jhokang must be seen to be comprehended.

As you go around Jokhang temple, Lhasa’s cathedral, you come across with pilgrims prostrating themselves, tall Khampas with red braids in their hair, Chinese tourists, and traders selling goods that you cannot imagine.

The lush green color in Nepal slowly fades away and arid and dull gray plateau appears which in turn turns into blue sky as you land at Lhasa. The highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest, and another 8000-meter peak of Mt. Makalu dominates the breathtaking view.

Annapurna foothill region is the focus of the article “Honey Hunters of Nepal”, written by Eric Valli and Diane Summers and another article “Annapurna Sanctuary for the Himalaya” written and photographed by Galen Rowell. Both articles were published in National Geography magazine. It has been subject of writers, photographers and climbers since Mourice Herzog first ascent to 8000 m peak Annapurna 1 back in 1950s

The glacial basin of Annapurna Sanctuary is formed by the circle of Annapurna Himalaya range, Gangapurna and Machapuchre. We start our trek at Dhumpus and walk the beautiful trail that opens up the entire Machapuchere peak and the vista of Annapunra to Chumro as you travel from Chumro towards the Sanctuary the trail pass through narrow valley which is prone to avalanche in winter and early spring. You follow Modi Khola (river) through thick bamboo and rhododendron forests into the center of lateral moraine and base camp of Annapurna to view the spectacular Annapurna range all around. Stop at Ghorepani to see beautiful sunrise view over Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. The Gurung villages and frequent stops at tea-shop dotted along the way gives unique cultural experience. Like the Sherpa in Everest, Gurung are in Annapurna and Limbus in Kanchanjunga.

As a matter of fact the Machapuchere and Annapurna base camp were summer pasture land of the Gurung ethnic community living in Armaula, Dampus and Ghandrung long before the Annapurna region was reconnaissance by the British around 1925. Despite the lower height Machapuchere peak always attracted the attention of the visitors. The sanctuary is surrounded by the four highest peak in the Annapurna massif which are all above 7500 meter; the British survey team gave them the name Annapurna 1, 2, 3 and 4 - Annapurna 1 is the highest (8091m). It was climbed by the French expedition lead by Maurice Herzog in 1950. Instead of Dhaulagiri they climbed Annapurna 1 instead of the British who had set to climb the peak but went to the wrong place to set their camp. Ever since the route to the sanctuary was traced by Col. Robert around 1964 the trekkers have found their holy-land in the mystery that engulf them there. The land is also holy for the local Gurung who have been living there since human habitation started.
