text: Today we had one of the longest climbs of the entire tour. From Tuensang we had to go down to a river bed, then up a low mountain range, again down to a river and finally the entire climb of 4000 feet to the small village of Hak. Although we were climbing up in the sun most of the time, it was not very exhausting and we only needed two and a half hours for the entire 4000 feet.
