text: At the shore people from Tamlu were expecting us and we ate our lunch. I would have liked to bathe in the Dikhu which was muddy brown and quite fast in the middle, but there was no time. (98) After a small stint along the level jungle trail we met the bridle path where our ponies were waiting. Now we climbed in regular bends up to Tamlu 2983 feet high. That was after we had been at an altitude of only 540 feet at the Dikhu River.
