text: As Noklak and Pangsha are friends the trail is in good condition and is apparently much travelled. There is little opportunity for panjis and traps and initially our progress is good. After a while we see a small herd of mithan grazing peacefully in the grass in between single trees. The mithan of Noklak and Pangsha graze together here so that we cannot simply shoot the Pangsha mithan as we never know whether we might not hit one from Noklak.
