A tale of two Tataopanis

The bus dropped us at Beni 10 days ago which is at the confluence of two big rivers, the Kali Gandaki and the Magdy Khola. It is from there that we started walking – or at least most of us did! Within yards of the first campsite two members of group 1 paused to take a photo and, in doing so, lost sight of their group. They asked directions for Tattopani which they knew was the name of their planned lunch stop. Sadly for them there are two Tattopanis. One on the Magdy Khola and the other up the other valley. Thus they spent the first 2 hours walking up the wrong valley and had to retreat by jeep in order to catch up with their group at Babichur – their second campsite.
