Today we spent some time with school students in the forest. We taught them how to recognise and identify 7 different types of orchid. They were really enthusiastic and are looking forward to tomorrow when we will be spending more time with them back at their school.
As promised a morning view from our hotel looking over gangtok
After a long drive we have arrived in Gangtok. Although it is dark we have a lovely view of the city, photos in the morning of the same view will follow
This morning we woke up early and couldn’t wait to see more orchids. This meant not even getting dressed. Smiley faces though, but only just. The orchid Georgia spotted was Coelogyne flacida.
After an unforgettable day this is our team with Hemlata’s team and a few dogs to finish it off.
