Today as well we are pedaling downhill. The cycling journey today starts out on a gentle and flat trail. It also cross passes  in and out of the valley sides, through lush vegetation and small settlements. We enjoy the lunch at Chaahara and beyond Chaahara our ride drops almost 1000m challengingly along the sweepy turns and plunges, rocky sections and bumps. Finally we arrive to Tatopani. Upon arriving at Tatopani, we will have descended up to an altitude of 1,189m. Tatopani translates in English to hot water.
