    ... people up there, we had a wander round and it was interesting to see a working monastery, with monks doing ordinary things. We even saw a couple of monks on a motorbike, a Royal Enfield Bullet I am reliably informed, I really wish that I had the guts to as them for a photo, it was such a juxtaposition to see them pill up their robes and hop on a bike.

    ... And we were still four hours or so from Darjeeling, our final destination.
    Things seemed to get better when we landed. It was over 2000 rupees for a Jeep from the airport in Bagdogra to Darjeeling (only 70k's but it's a steep and rough, winding road). Too much...we only had 50 rupees to our name and the cash machine at the airport as empty!

I also finally saw a Yak after failing to see one on the trek.

    The Himalayan Mountaineering Institute had two floors of ...

    ... to cross border trade with Chinese occupied Tibet. We passed many military camps, having to twice stop at checkpoints. At the Lake the girls rode yaks, and we were able to walk on snow for the first time in India. The lake itself is at 3755 meters altitude, is about a mile long and a quarter mile wide. It is home to Rhuddy Duck and Brown Trout, but no fishing allowed, as it is a sacred site. Indians could continue up the road 18 kms to the border ...

    We went out to visit several of the Buddhist monasteries which were all badly damaged in the earth quake this September. We had a wonderful lunch near the monastery and a stroll around Gangtok. I found a beautiful 60 year old Cauw ( a huge necklace worn by women at their wedding) I would have like to get it however it was ...
