text: The way to Wangla is not long but it leads up and down although it keeps on the whole to one slope. (98) In a field hut the gaonburas of Wangla are expecting us and they offered us fairly good rice beer. Then we descended to the village which one can see lying below. As just then there was some sunshine I took the long way around to the Ang's house, hoping to get some photographs of the hill with the menhirs, but just when I arrived the sun disappeared behind the clouds. But as the weather is so uncertain I returned to the place again later and indeed I could take two pictures with some sunshine
