The long and arduous drive from the airport at Bagdrogba is daunting, but at the halfway stage our Glenburn driver pulled over to a rest area with a stunning view over a deep gorge for a welcome picnic lunch. This moment is a foretaste of the extraordinary experience that is ahead. For the last few miles in the high foothills of the Himalayas the "road" becomes more nerve wracking, but the warmth of the welcome from the entire staff, the wonderful dinner that awaits you, the astonishing beauty of the morning, breakfast on the terrace under the pomelo trees, the sparkling air of the high country, and you know you have been transported to a very special place on the planet where your needs are met with heart-warming attention. A dream realised.
