Day eight - return. Because we are not dependent on helicopter transport, firstly, the expedition is more economical, secondly, we are not exposed to the risk, due to bad weather, and we will not get to the plane.

We go back a similar way as here we arrived at the hotel overnight. This time the attraction will visit the local fish market.
