text: To TANGSA. This village was broken up by, I think, a YUNGYA, TOTOK, MON and CHUI combination about 1912, but rebuilt under the aegis of the Subdivisional Officer. The village was very friendly and not at all shy.
text: From the village there is a good view of the country across the SHINIONG including HAOCHING and Chua - PHOM villages apparently - and the enormous village of CHEN, just visible.
text: There is a good camping ground, below the little offshoot of TANGSA on the YACHAM side of the hill on which TANGSA stands, with plenty of good water.
text: Captain Shakespear made the height of TANGSA 4200' and our camp there 3900-3950.
