What a day! For our final jeep ride to the “trailhead”, the road did not dissapoint!
Intense 4wheel drive roads, followed by massive breakdowns of machines, finally saw us reach Askole by mid afternoon. There were a few hair raising moments, especially when we saw a suspension bridge that was on the road we were travelling twisted and broken from a recent flood!
All is well now and we are all settled in here in Askole finalizing the sorting of our loads, and hiring our porters for the walk to basecamp!
It will be nice to finally be on foot travel again!
