ABC Journey_Part 3

Descending the mountains from ABC back to Kathmandu ... overnight at:
(a) Dovan ... that we saw the glow of Fishtail peak during sunset
(b) Jhinu Danda (after Chhomrong, we took another trek to return to trail head, different from Poon Hill trek)
(c) Pokhara ... token of appreciation to support crew; visit the Pokhara lake
(d) Art Hotel, Kathmandu; farewell dinner and receiving certificates of completing ABC.

This is the final album for the ABC trek.

 Descending the mountains from Annapurna Base Camp

As I understand from the mountain guide, there are three types of packages when trekking in Annapurna Base Camp trek:

(a) Bed only (breakfast, lunch and dinner are paid as one eats);
(b) Bed and breakfast (lunch and dinner are paid as one eats);
(c) Full board (includes all meals, hot water drink and bath). 

All the above packages include mountain guide and porters services. Choice (a) and (b) would be the cheapest in term of package fees, but one has to calculate and pay every time when ordering food and hot water drink, which is inconvenience especially at high altitude that may affect the mental activity and thinking.

On behalf of the team members, I would like to thank the following persons for providing the excellent services:
(a) trekking agent, Mr Cheban Devkota of Manaslu Adventure Treks (Pvt.) Ltd; 
(b) mountain guide, Mr Ram; 
(c) assistant guide, Mr Sunil; and
(d) the team of strong and handsome porters.

To contact Mr Cheban, just Google the company name above.
 The lodge in Dovan is equipped with TV (that can received BBC broadcasting), electric heater, and a refrigerator (not in the photo); electricity is generated by a mini hydro-power turbines nearby
