Photographer's Note

This picture was taken the first day of our trek towards upper mustang near the village Kagbeni. In Mustang the coulours and shades of the earth and sand are literally "breathtakingly" beautiful.

We were kind of glad to be finally on our way and on our feet, as the day before, we experienced a very, very bumpy and adventurous ride through the Kali Gandaki Gorge with an old Toyota Corolla Taxi (the Jeeps wouldn't take us because it was already too late in the afternoon).

Last year they managed to build a "road" through the gorge, from Beni all the way up to Jomsom, and as our plane didn't depart from Pokhara due to bad sight, we decided to go by taxi.

In the beginning we were really intrigued by the idea of driving up the K.G.Gorge, but worries surfaced when we had to light the road ahead with our head torches as the head lamps of the car stopped working...

Well, once in a lifetime...
