We have just spent our first night in the Himalayas and I wanted to see the mountains properly. For this I was told I had to get up nice and early. I set my alarm this morning for 5:15 but didn’t needed it as I was woken by the most amazing collection of bird noises. No mountains this morning, I hope to have better luck tomorrow.
After a long day of flying, driving and walking, we sat down to a cup of tea and sorted through our photos. An early night is needed for the rest of the trip now.
Today we had a long drive from Bagdogra to Kalimgpong and found lovely orchids on the side of the road, because we were stuck in a traffic jam so we had to have an explore.
Between flights from the UK to Bagdogra we stayed in a hotel in Delhi. It was a very short night of about 4 hours, but it was nice after an 8 hour flight to lay down. Here we are all refreshed and ready to move on.
Now we have our full Sikkim team with Lauren joining us from Kew just in time to catch our plane
