Koto: We are staying in a place called Koto, near Chame, the district headquarters of Manang. The better camping spot was already booked/occupied by another group. But we managed to find one at the end of the town toward Chame. I went Chame, visited government office area with Margriet and Brooke. This is an interesting place surrounded by huge hills from three sides. We also visited the Popular higher secondary school that was closed for Dashain holiday.

The Book

Today begins the hunting for the people featured in a book about Nar-Phu called Cloud Dwellers that was published some 25 years ago. Wanda had carried the book as when I saw that I instantly though about meeting the characters photographed in the book. She was also excited after hearing about this. Wanda came to the tent saying there were two boys from Nar who might be able to tell us more about the characters. They recognized almost all of the faces as if they were turning the pages of their family album.
