Great Big Walk Day 17: To Nango La Camp (4776m)

To Nango La Camp (4776m)
From Ghunsa we descend the main trail alongside the Ghunsa Kola until we meet a junction in the trail, from here we ascend to a series of summer grazing pastures (Kharka) where we will camp for the night. We’ll walk for about six hours today.

 

Quote for the Day

 

Walkers are ‘practitioners of the city,’ for the city is made to be walked. A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities. Just as language limits what can be said, architecture limits where one can walk, but the walker invents other ways to go.
Rebecca Solnit

Find Your Fit Fact

 

Good posture for walking involves standing up with your back being straight. Your back should have a natural curve.

 

Activity Suggestion: Find Your Direction

 

Bring all students to the center of the gym with a mat laid out in each of the following directional areas of the gym (which you must designate and show the students): North, South, East, West, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, & Southwest. Begin by telling the students you will yell out a certain direction that they must run to, touch the mat there, and return to the center circle. As students return, one by one you can tell them different directions to run to. Note: make sure to scatter students in different directions as much as possible to minimize clustering and risk of collisions.
