Trail conditions

The trail condition on the circuit was very good considering all the warnings I read about from the earthquake damage. Countless numbers of suspension bridges had held up well through the 2015 earthquake, but there were also signs of constant improvements along the trail.  The lower photo shows remnants from an older trail.

This trail system is a very important part of the locals’ lives as it provides the only means of transport/hauling of goods (via mules and yaks) in some of the more isolated parts of this region.
