An alteration day will be spent in the Tibetan village of Manang (3500m), where we will be able to observe Buddhist monks in worship at one of the many magnificent monasteries of this area. A side trip will also be taken to the icy Gangapurna Lake and the awesome Gangapurna Glacier, a photographer's paradise!
