text: The path now went steeply down and soon we reached the christian khel of the village. Here it started to rain and we had to do the major part of the decline in coats and with umbrellas down to the little Chingno River, yet it was quite hot and humid. Finally the rain stopped and just when we climbed the 1500 feet up to the small village Thungar the sun came out.
