text: Hak is a small, poor village at a height of 6712 feet which serves as a lookout post for Tuensang. From there the path wound itself in endless turns through lush jungle down towards Longtang. From up above the village seemed very close but we did not reach it until about one o'clock after altogether about six hours of walking. A good camp had been prepared.
