Thirteenth stage of the "Return to the Annapurnas" between Kokethani and Dana. For me one of the most beautiful and complete of all the trekking. And the most demanding for its length (although it is less than what the track marks, since the GPS failed at some point marking more than real). It goes all the time for beautiful and lonely roads (some incredible for its layout) in a unique environment. It is a pity that these last stages after Marpha are not walked by almost anyone because they are a delight for lovers of hiking in high mountains.
It was a rather gray day, so I gave up going to the "Dhaulagiri Icefall", which was the main reason why we had slept in Kokethani. The path up (soft) to Lake Titi is beautiful. Pity not being able to see the views of the Nilgiris, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri because of the clouds as it would have been impressive. We continue a little further up a hill to go down and divert (there are several options for travel) to the interesting town of Tuclun. We then go down to Chhoyo, where the path goes a long way to save the immense bed of Pangbu Khola. Then we continue through incredibly lonely places saving more confined riverbeds until we descend again to the side of the Kali Gandaki in a stretch that makes the throat really spectacular. The road in this section is simply impressive, you have to see it to believe where roads can be made when they are necessary. So we get to the last stretch, and more open in which we walk beautiful villages before reaching Dana, which is on the other side of the Kali Gandaki (on the main track) where nothing else to arrive begins to pour (another day we had relative luck to be able to escape from the shower)
