text: Here we are in the heart of the Yimchungr country, in the biggest Yimchungr village. This is Aohukyu's home and we have just met all his family.
text: Yesterday we moved through a maze of river valleys cut deeply into the serrated hills. The march ended with a tiring 3000 feet pull up an open hillside of grass, wild flowers and small pine trees. But it is a restful camp surrounded with river valleys which remind me of a plaster geography model showing the formation of rivers.
