A green Oasis at the junction of the Jhong khola and Kali Gandaki river. Kagbeni looks like a town out of the medieval past, with closely packed mud houses, dark tunnels and alleyways, imposing chortens and a large, ochre-colored Gompa perched above the town. Many people still dress in typical Tibetan clothes, though the children have even in this faraway village, learned to beg, rather insistently for pencil a rare commodity. Their innocence and ever cheerful faces always brightens the drab surrounding.Overnight at the lodge in Kagbeni.
