Pieris formosa is fairly typical by the 27th

and Paris polyphilla

plus Trillidium govanianum

After this Primula denticulata occurred and Rh babartum

Oxygraphis polypetala

by the 29th we had reached the lakes. P.aureata grows beside the lake...and is not plentiful

Next came most of the primulas shown at the top. Then 1st May we went down into forest to walk out into the outskirts of Kathmandu on 3rd May.

Then some fauna..caterpillars. I have only seen this sort of thing around the Med.

On the 1st the icing on the cake..forest orchids..Pleione hookeri

Coelogynes

pseudobulbs. Any thoughts on id..they may not have been all the same species.

It was quite a demanding trek, lower altitude than Everest base camp, but rougher under foot and quite long.

The trek started at Syabrubensi just north of Kathmandu but it took 2 days by bus (private). Land slips are a serious problem on the road. The bus at the end takes anhour or so depending on traffic. Sorry,

I notice a few more typos, eg polyphylla.
