Say lives in a beautiful house with her husband. The trail here can be rather difficult as it is on the top of a mountain. It has stunning views over the valley and the sunrise behind the Himalayas ' last peak. Say welcomes travelers to stay overnight but be prepared for real “local life” - no showers or water toilets but awesome views & food cooked over an open fire.
