text: The way to Noklak is long and sunny and we are all a bit deflated. On top of that I have to drag the basket with the four heads up the mountain. When we arrive in Noklak around one o'clock we are served madhu which slightly revives our spirits. Mills and I with a small escort take a walk around the not uninteresting village. Noklak is a real Kalyu-Kengyu village with low small houses, all of them covered with slate tiles
