Join us on “The Great Descent,” as we share our invigorating trek from Machhermo to the River Resort at Portse Tanga. Experience the camaraderie and friendly competition that turned our challenging journey into an uplifting adventure. Revel in the rejuvenating power of lower altitudes, as we leave behind the struggles of acclimatization and embrace the stunning beauty of the Himalayas. Discover the tranquility and charm of the River Resort, where relaxation and delicious food awaited our arrival.

Descending to Portse Tanga

Prioritizing our group’s well-being, we made sure everyone had ample time to rest. Consequently, we didn’t begin our day until around 11 am. A few trekkers still struggled with the altitude, so we embarked on our descent at a slow and steady pace, ensuring that we kept in step with everyone. Reaching Dole, we stopped for a late lunch, which, combined with a brief rest and the lower altitude, helped rejuvenate the group. Feeling re-energized, everyone eagerly tackled the next portion of the descent. In fact, the next couple of hours turned into a friendly race to see who would reach our destination first. Almost sprinting downhill, we all arrived at the River Resort in Portse Tanga by 5 pm.

Nestled at the bottom of a picturesque valley, the resort’s extraordinary location was embraced by the awe-inspiring, towering Himalayan peaks. The serene landscape created a sense of seclusion, transporting us to a world where nature’s beauty reigned supreme. Crystal-clear waters meandered gracefully past the resort grounds, their soothing murmurs providing a natural soundtrack to our stay. The lush greenery that adorned the surrounding area added a vibrant touch, infusing life and color into the panorama.

A gentle breeze caressed our skin, while the perfect weather conditions made for an idyllic environment. We unwinded and recuperated from our arduous journey. The resort itself seemed to harmonize with the natural surroundings. This enhanced the overall ambiance and made us feel at one with nature.

Our taste buds were not forgotten, as we were treated to a delightful array of delicious food. The culinary experience culminated in a scrumptious chocolate pudding. It satisfied our sweet cravings and added a touch of indulgence to our stay. The combination of the resort’s breathtaking location, rejuvenating atmosphere, and mouth-watering cuisine transformed our time at the River Resort into an unforgettable experience that we would cherish for years to come.
