Kangchenjunga 02 03 Relaxing in our lodge in Mitlung  [11 of 16]


Our first day trekking: clouds, fog, Maoists, rain, no mountains - yuck! Some trekking days are just hard work; this was one of them. The second day trekking was brutal! We descended 1360m straight down from Gurja (2000m) to Doban (640m), where I met the rest of our crew. We then bushwhacked our way in blazing heat, along a new temporary trail by the river, to Mitlung (880m). I drank all of my water in just over an hour and was deliriously dehydrated for the next four hours. When I got to Mitlung, I drank a litre of Pepsi. Here’s the hanging Zig-Zagger, Big Nose, and a cool Danger Dangles relaxing in our lodge in Mitlung (880m) after an extremely hard trekking day.
