A travel blog entry by scottandamy


... Pelling and got a lay of the land it was a very small place but very very pretty, we were pretty excited to be there.

We woke up early at 5am to catch a glimpse of the mighty Mount Khangchendzonga (8,586 metres, 28,169 ft) tall which is best viewed in the early hours of the morning when the haze is thinner.
