Here comes the altitude!

Day 4 of Annapurna sanctuary – Doban to Maccapuchare Base Camp

We definitely packed a bit too much distance into this day and I probably wouldn’t recommend it to other trekkers.

We started to feel the altitude as we reached Deorali (3230 metres), just up past Hinko cave but we still had a way to go to reach Machapuchare Base Camp. The fog had come down and it was very atmospheric, though also hard going.

Our bedroom situation stepped up a notch this night as we settled for cramming ourselves into a tent. A very tight squeeze indeed!
