While crossing the bridge, we trek through the wonderful Sal forests, then move onto a ridge above huge rapids on the Budhi Gandaki. The trek continues up and down, past two tropical waterfalls on a steep, rocky trail clinging to the side of a cliff. It eventually makes its way down and past a few rice terraces, then up and around to the Gurung village of Labubesi. We further climb behind a rocky outcrop, where the valley opens up and the Budhi Gandaki meanders among huge gravel bars.
