  A bridge we took to cross a stream

We then headed downhill to pick up our backpacks and continue on the trek. Today we would follow an often used link between the Annapurna Circuit trail and the Annapurna Sanctuary trail. We were not to do that as we where aiming to finish off the trek in style, at the base camp of Annapurna I. We started off walking through a densely vegetated rainforest. At first we climbed up to the village of Deurali, where we stopped for tea. The trail got muddy along this point as it was too humid and wet. We slowly walked down thru a narrow compact Gorge with tall rock escarpments on the sides, and the dense jungle like subtropical vegetation down below. The river was joined by many streams and waterfalls that made for a fun and exciting walk. The trail leads to the village of Banthanti. We hiked past this village and then climbed up the side of the gorge and entered another valley. Eventually, we reached the town of Tadapani, where we had a filling lunch. We soon were faced by an even steeper downhill that cut right thru the new valley full of cultivated fields (growing some sort of grain whose name escapes my memory). We went all the way down and across the river at the base. We then climbed uphill once more on the other side of the valley. We reached the town of Gurajun (2,200 M.A.S.L.), where we met a school teacher that offered us a tour of the school. Apparently, the students only get Saturday and a few holidays off, though they study from 10 AM to 4 PM only. It was getting late so we overnight soon after at a simple guesthouse overlooking the valley below.
