text: From my camp I can see Lunglam on top of a mountain in front of me. Although Chingai describes it as a small and uninteresting village I decide to have a look at it. Finally we also are having a splendid beautiful day and so I go off in the morning with Nlamo, Yongem and the boy who always accompanies Chingai.
