"When we finally called it a day after the trek, my guide was shocked (as was I) to find the village in a state of disrepair after the earthquake." This was one sight, of many, ruins that once stood as hotels. Whilst it was horrible to witness the local people's businesses and homes to have been destroyed, what I saw next was nothing but amazing. The family who had owned 'hotel mountain galaxy' had erected temporary accomodation for themselves and guests included. This meant that I had the delight of sitting with the family next to the fire, helping Sita cook Dahl baht whilst keeping the cheeky toddlers entertained.
