Photographer's Note

Tonglu is the first stop while on the trek to Sandakphu. It can be reached from Manebhanjan or from Dhotre(2700 Mts) by trekking for 5 Kms.

Personally I prefer the trek from Dhotre.

The best part about this trek is that the path is well beaten and the views of Mt K is constantly by your side !!

There is only one trekkers hut (seen in the picture) in Tonglu and is run by Tsering Sherpa and his son Lakpa. The simplicity, warmth and hospitality of Tsering touches one's heart instantly.

This shot was taken from Tonglu Top during sunset and the view of the kanchendzonga range from here is breathtaking. With clouds below your feet and Mt K ahead one really feels on top of the world.
