NATT trail 50/3 Putak
Putak is the smallest village of the Pearl necklace but very cute :-)
Short before the village a small
trail is going down to the village
In September the leaves are already getting autumn colors
Putak in December with the Thorong La
Continuing to Kagbeni you will mainly walk in a barren and dry area.
Look on the path, in this area we found some small amonnites but dont forget to look also on the Thorong la which is so clear on this trail.
The road passes on the right side of a hill. It then descent to the Kali Gandaki river in
serpentines. Watch out for the red white NATT sign. A small path will lead you to a little chorten at the end of the hill ridge overlooking the Valley and Kagbeni.
