Ascent Trip ReportTook a nice walk from my downtown Kalimpong hotel through the pretty "suburbs." Very nice people. From the Monastery I met a nice family visitng from Boston and shared lunch. I inquired and some monks showed me a trail that descended all the way to Relli Chola, going through some nice forests at a small saddle and below. Quite a change in flora from top to bottom. I took a sllightly different trail up to Army Dara and back to the hotel. I met some high school kids at the bottom that were very surprised to see a foreigner there. I had delusions of doing this trail again to lolagoan, but ended up going to Neora Valley instead. Long day.
