... to share. Sylvain walked down with us to check out Sonam and his tour options. We were more enthused after this second visit to Sonam's office and put down a deposit and told him to get the driver and car scheduled. The only question was how many people.

When we got there we were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely cosy room with comfy looking beds and warm blankets. Our guide brought us hot water to wash with and then tea and biscuits, and we relaxed until tea time happy with the days efforts. The lodge for the evening was in Tumling, on ...
