text: We three now started off at about seven o'clock with three ponies. The weather was cool and occasionally cloudy. Our goal was Sathazumi. The path went slowly uphill through dense forest and soon we came to a beautiful view from where one could see far into the Ao country, and to the Wokha Hills. Towards the North East one saw a few Sema villages.
