We waited in the village for a few hours with many terrified villagers. When we felt it was safer we started to make our way on foot down the mountain through many small villages that were completely destroyed. We looked helplessly as we passed by people who had just lost everything.
Stopping occasionally to talk to anyone who spoke English, we heard of many deaths, many injuries, mainly broken limbs, and lacerations , along with many animals lost that form the basis of most livelihoods.
We followed a valley to a town called Trishuli which was hit hard and resembled a small war zone. We stopped in the town in a small refuge centre in the back of a hotel for the night and two nurses we were with gave first aid to locals. The locals were amazing and happy to provide us with a place to sleep and food.
