As we descended, first night at 3600metres, we passed the tree line and the farther down we went, the greener, lusher, damper, warmer and more humid it became. The first night was below zero - our tent and sleeping bags were as snug as can be, and the long johns were helpful every night, but it became more pleasant.
2nd and 3rd nights at about 2600 feet, so the effects of altitude are gone. Bloody steep hills just the same!
My feet were killing me - both little toenails are gone, and the boys very kindly carried my gear.
