Then we pass a number of small villages tucked into the hillside, until we reach a widening of this valley, on our opposite where a large tributary stream enters the Buri Gandaki. The terraced farmland here belongs to the village of Lapbesi. We descend once again to the wider section, sandy Riverbank and follow a path, which runs below the steep, craggy valley path.

After a short section of forest trail, we reach a single teahouse at Doban. Above Doban village, the Budi Gandaki descends with some notable flowing of rapids.
