... 2.5km uphill. In the mist we puffed our way to the Zoo.
First we didn't see a bear as the enclosure was huge and overgrown, this was good in some ways as it meant the enclosures were good and hopefully that meant happy animals. Then we got to the leopards. The happy leopard couple then put on a show for us!

After three hours of driving, we reach a border crossing where my permit is reviewed and stamped. I was within 30 minutes of arriving into Gangtok and having my lunch when something happened. The bus stopped! It stopped moving. Hours went by. We were parked on a steep hill and the bus driver was sat on a bench on the road??? What was going on? I had only half a bottle of water and zero food, thinking I would make ...
