Out of the jungle. After three days hiking through the palm tress, giant ferns, and humid weather of the jungle, we had finally approached something that seemed more suited to the mountains. Monkeys and tropical birds were behind us and below us by about 1000 meters. Here we encountered herds of yaks and mountain goats and deer and a lot more brown than green in the woods. It was nice though as we stopped sweating, donned another layer or two, and could more greatly appreciate the luxury of getting warm in the cold with extra blankets, roaring fires, and hot ginger at each guesthouse.
