The trek begins in earnest once you leave the main road and wind your way from village to village. The villages are not large and may only consist of two or three houses. Every now and then you will come across a little shop selling drinks and basic necessities. There are small kiosks for tourists and these attract the villages who are always looking for opportunities to see their handicrafts. We saw an impoverished hospital which appears to be only used as an occasional clinic. Village children, like children everywhere, are charming and friendly.
