Short excursion (on the day of rest to better acclimatize) to visit the Gangapurna Glacier Lagoon (formed when the glacier of the homonymous peak retires) and then go up to the Chongar Viewpoint (it is a kind of recreational area at the top of the moraine, with a teahouse). We continued walking a little bit more upwards, leaning all the time at the edge of the moraine, with spectacular views of the hanging glacier, closer and closer, until we reached a point where the terrain was tilted so we decided to turn around (my woman went with a good gastroenteritis and did not have much strength, the next day I would relieve her) and return by the main road.
Then we visit the old part of Manang, which is a real delight as there are not many tourists and it is undoubtedly one of the best preserved ancient helmets of all the trekking.
This route has been manually redone since the original was recorded very bad because of the GPS that was not very fine.

There are two roads, one by the slope (which is the one we are taking now) and another one above the moraine itself (which we will take around)
