Stage 2 – Dhoban to Deng

Again today we’re following the course of the river with short climbs and descents. The rice paddy fields will disappear to be replaced by millet, barley and maize. We run through Jagat, a pretty village with a paved main square, stopping briefly at a checkpoint. From Philim onwards we reach pine forest and from here on Buddhist culture dominates. We’ll see more Buddhist stupas and chortens along the trail.

GPS data to be updated.
