Photographer's Note

We were just approaching Tonglu. It was late afternoon. The sun was preparing itself to set as everyday. Golden-red light reflected in snow capped mountains. At left beside silhouetted mountain you can see world's 3rd highest peak Kanchenjunga followed by Pandim etc. Tonglu (10000 ft) is in the trek route of Sandakphu. Though you can't find it in conventional route. From Meghma you have to leave the conventional route to trek about 2km with a steep uphill to reach this place. Not many trekker generally used to visit Tonglu in their trek to Sandakphu, but it is a nice place with a single trekker's hut which it itself a beauty. You can see the hut in my previous post. A vast range of snow capped peaks of Himalaya could be seen from this place in clear day. We were lucky to enjoy this view from Tonglu. Hope you also enjoy it.
