text: After several long marches, crossing more than one 5,000 feet ridge, we reach the borders of administered territory and build our last camp by the Dikhu river under the cover of high trees. lt is the first time for several weeks that we do not suffer from cold during the night. Our tour is almost at an end, and now we must think of dividing the spoils. We have been presented with more than fifty dao in the different villages and we distribute them among the dobashi and the leaders of the porters.
