    ... to do here an' all. We didn't make it to Tiger Hill for sunrise on account of the near-permanent cloud cover, but we did make it up Observatory Hill where Buddhists and Hindus worship side by side. It's all prayer flags and prayer wheels, then there's Shiva linghams and statues of Ganesh nestled amongst them. There's a zoo too. I'd say don't bother but you have to walk through it to get to the HMI, Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, ...

    ... duties. The situation is in the hands of the mafia and government will struggle to take control of this lucrative business. We made our way up a very windy and bumpy road making sleep impossible and causing a few queazy stomachs.

    ... to NJP station, so it's a shame it got wiped out by a landslide. Hopefully the plans to restore it in the next few years will come through- this would be such an ideal way to travel compared to driving!

    Back in the cafe later that night we bump into a buddy we first met in Varanassi. Rob, from the UK is a gem and also on an extensive journey around the world. After a cafe catchup we decided to head to a nearby restaurant for ...
