An amazing amazing day unlike any we have experienced. We began our climb shortly after 8 am, hiking over 3000 feet up through changing ecosystems of rhododendron, pine and oak. Magpies and dogs accompanied us on our way. Trails ranged from steps to rocky paths with multiple switch backs. We reached the Monastery after 2 1/2 hours following a final push through over 600 steps. Photos were not allowed inside the buildings – unfortunate as magic happened. I encourage everyone who can to visit this place. We will let the photos tell the story.

This has been an incredible couple of weeks. We leave for Delhi tomorrow for 4 days exploring Old Delhi, Rishikish and the Taj Mahal. Stay tuned!
