    ... lookouts (huts built high in the trees where a watcher can sit) and he explained the irrigation of the rice paddy fields - also he told us what we knew to be Egrets wading in the water were actually Pelicans, we both looked at each other and smiled.
    We pulled in to Siriguya and paid the 3,900 rupees entrance fee each. Siriguya is a huge rock formation with a monestry at the very top, there are a lot of steps and I mean a LOT! We arrived a midday, so the worst time to start climbing ...

    Day 5: Like any New Years day you appreciate a wee sleep in. Fortunately our next stop was only 1 hour up the road so we headed off at a respectable 9.30. Our NY day activity was cycling through the small villages around Giritale Tank (reservoir built in 7th century). Cycling around the waterways and villages of Giritale. This was a lovely way to spend the morning and early afternoon, just watching people as they went about daily life, bathing in river and greeting kids who ...

    ... largest tea exporter. The lady showed us the three types they grow here - green tea, white tea and golden tea. White tea and golden tea are different plants - and only the smallest leaf shoots and picked and dried. No further processing.
