Today we're leaving Lingshed to go to Hanumala Base camp (4000m). It's a very short day, we only walked 3,5 Hours and only gained 300m in altitude. We did this so that tomorrow would not be too long, it's going to be a difficult day anyway.

So after our short walk, we were staying in a valley next to a small brook and at the bottom of the mountain that we'll have to climb tomorrow. It was the hottest day of our whole trip! 45°C on the thermometer in the tent!!!!

We took advantage of this hot day to wash ourselves in the river, the water was ice cold and not deep at all, but it was great to splash around in this bit of water. Ofcourse we went downstream from our camp as we're also using this water for cooking ;-)
