Nepal 2012 Flat Day ... NOT

Our guides told us this was a FLAT day. NOT!
It is called a flat day when you start and end the day at the same elevation. But that doesn't mean it was flat DURING the day. Actually we ascended 2899ft(884m) and descended 2963ft(903m) for an almost flat day with a 64ft (19m) elevation loss. It was only 8 miles, but it was a long and hard day. The worst uphill grade was 44% and the worst downhill grade was 50%. Our exhausted legs told us it was NOT a flat day!
