April 17, Cont.

Lucille called on the Sat phone, and told me they stayed in a villiage called Ghap (2380m) last night. It looks like it is pretty close to where I guessed.

She did say that they are probably going to arrive at Samagaon (3525m) after the next leg. That is where they had originally planned a rest day in their itinerary, but they may just proceed to base camp and rest there instead.

She said the valley they are travelling in is very lush, and they saw some monkeys. Still feeling good but are now more aware of the elevation, which is still not too bad. Samagaon is about the same elevation as Lukla, which marks the beginning of the Everest trek, so elevation at this point is not problematic for them to deal with. I thought she had said Araghat was the same as Lukla, but I was mistaken, she actually meant Samagaon.

I found an interactive map of the Manaslu Trekking Circuit at the following link.

All is well
