The Sham Trek is a 4 day trek that usually goes from Likir to Ang. However, since I preceded the trek with the Lamaruyu Gompa Festival, I was to do it in the reverse direction. The Sham Trek is called t he 'Baby Trek' as we never have to trek above 4000 meters (approximately 13000 ft). I guess I am a 'baby' as I found it quite difficult going uphill at this 'baby' altitude. I already had my guide, Mantog, with me for the festival, but joining us for the trek was another guide, Stanzin, and an Australian woman, Anna, who decided to do the trek at the last moment and was able to join us.
