... nicely. We are served a huge bottle of water, followed by coffee and tea, followed by a breakfast consisting of bread with honey, and an omelette (if your choice is the non-veg menu), including another round of coffee and tea.

At the village at the end of the road, we walked through fragrant blossoming trees with a backdrop of 4000-metre Himalayan mountains covered in the winter snows. Then we returned to Kalpa to visit the Buddhist gompa, Hindu temple and monastery, all ancient buildings, perhaps 700 years ...

... included a free heater in our room!

The hotel was called Wingait Inn and was 20 minutes walk from the centre of town. It certainly kept us pretty fit as we walked to town at least once a day and the uphill walk into town was a pretty steep ascent. There was a particular spot where large numbers of monkeys would gather and, despite their cute appearance, were very aggressive. On one occasion there must have been a clash of two rival ...
