Nepal. Along the trail from Pokhara to Annapurna, Being a long trek up and down mountainsides there are resting places often shaded by a tree. The only way anyone or anything gets to these remote places in the Himalaya foot hills is to walk it, an ambulance is a basket on someone's back. Through exertion and altitude dehydration is a problem, fortunately water can be collected from streams and along the way teashops provide sweet milky tea. I remember not having a pee for several days and when the moment came there was a torrent of opaque black urine, what a detox! A fellow traveller rests awhile.
