This is a wonderfully scenic loop at any time of year. The scenery along the way to your destination is constantly changing and is a source of unending delight. The hike from Aabu Khaireni to Manakamana temple and back was great fun for the team also. The hike, a three hour walk to the summit was enjoyed by one and all. We stayed up at the temple for lunch and then began our descent.
And just about everyone was haring down the slopes. We got there in a little over an hour. A truly rewarding experience as we drove back to Kathmandu, to our own cozy abodes.
