... The scenery was stunning as the clouds remained low for most of the day so we could see all the mountains all day long. It was quite windy though and surprisingly cold despite the clear skies and sunshine!

  • The ridge was mostly bare grassland with occasional wooded area. There were quite a lot of dead trees about too, not sure why but they did look cool with the mountain backdrop.
  • Passed through another army checkpoint then stopped for tea and noodle soup lunch ...

    Day two. Tumlin to Sandakphu 19k walk climbing around 800m. We asked how far we were going today and were told 19k. Quite a jump up from the previous day's 9 but with full stomachs and already feeling elated from our true Nepalese experience we were up for it. Niraj pointed somewhere hugely in the distance and said that is where we are going and it is the highest point of our trek. With the clouds not around we could really start to take in the views. Valleys and jungles all around ...

The trip back was a similar experience to the first, perhaps even more stressful! It wasnt a nice area of Darjeeling and is quite different to the nice side we know. Our trip was a complete failure! Our plan now was to head for some tea and cake! A nice cup of tea and a slice of walnut ...

    ... front of the jeep, and the extra leg room made all the difference to Dave's journey. On arriving back in Phikkal, we we disappointed to learn that despite previous assurances, we couldn't actually find any cheese here either. No matter, after walking down the track which is becoming more of a mud bath every day, we arrived at Deepak's and set about cooking.
