Who Am I
Day 3 - Part 1 : Morning at Pulungdung

We went out for an early morning stroll. The little village was still asleep mostly, except one creature who decided to accompany me.

There was a haze, but despite that, the sun could be seen. Isn’t this true always? The treasures are found by those who seek them.

Is the rhododendron greeting the sun? Or is it the other way?


The visitors on the previous night decided to stay back at the homestay. So we had the opportunity to take their photos.

Who Am I
Day 3 - Part 3 : Tukrey

We had to resist the temptation of getting down at every turn of the road, and eventually reached Tukrey. It is located beside the rivulet Rangbang. Being springtime, all the flowering plants and trees were blooming. It was indeed a visual treat.

Who Am I
Day 4 - Part 2 : Tribeni

From Ghum, we took the Peshok road. At Lopchu bazaar, we took a tea break. At one joint, clove was added to tea, and it tasted wonderful.

Road towards Tinchuley – looked very inviting; we’ll have to travel along this road one day.

We reached the famous Lovers Meet View Point.

The Rangeet from west Sikkim and the Teesta from north Sikkim

This is a very beautiful road, with Sal trees on both sides.

Day 4 - Part 3 : Delo, Ghum Monastery

P1160309-1.jpg

On top of that hill is located the view point

Teesta Bazar. Want to go to school again if that is located in such a picturesque area.

Kalimpong was very crowded, and we wanted to flee as soon as possible. So we moved towards Delo. Paragliding takes place there.

We entered the park.

Everybody was so eager to express love for Kalimpong - by taking different poses, between different letters, taking selfies and groupies that went on and on. After a really long time, could manage to take the above shot without those fans of Kalimpong.


We stopped again at Lopchu Bazar for that clove tea. Told that lady that she must have added drug to the tea for which we had to come back again. She was taken aback, but eventually got it.

Ghum monastery was open, and so we visited it.

Who doesn’t want to own a house amidst that greenery!

We took an early breakfast. Before leaving the homestay, we received nicely looking khadas from the hosts. They really made us feel like their extended family members. Soon we started for Bagdogra. It was a cool morning, and driving on that road is sure to lift anybody’s mood. Stopped briefly at Simana, a village on Nepal boder.

A zoomed view

On a clear day, Mt. Kanchenjunga can be seen also. For the rest of the journey, let the photos do the work on behalf of words.
