A final long day. From the gorgeous flat ground of Bimtang with its mountain views, we plunge along a technical forested trail with a lot of descent. The start is always cold in Bimtang. The place is surrounded by mountains and glaciers – the cold air sinks from the pass you crossed yesterday. The sun arrives around 8:30am but by then you’ll be long gone.
A stage of mainly downhill & oxygen – some supremely runnable trails, through gorgeous forest and a growing, turquoise torrent. The stage used to be longer, but the 18 km allows you to let it rip for the final enjoyable stage and a finish in warm sunlight.
— The End —
Almost! When we’ve gathered everyone, we will take jeeps and drive some four or five hours to the evening’s hotel in Besisahar. It’s a long, hard drive (on an impressive but very rough road) but worth it as hot showers and clean linen will await you on arrival.
