... we could hear in our room from 5am to 9pm each day.
After extensively picking our hosts brains we decided on several activities that we would like to do over the coming days. As a first climb we ventured to a small lake, well more of a pond at 3,700m. A short combi ride (minivan stuffed with as many people as possible) and a short walk through tiny crumbling village houses along a cow track, literally following behind locals who ...
