text: Halted at Hukpang and climbed to the peak known as "the RHINO HORN" or "PIYONGKUNG", a conical point rising from a ridge, and about 7,000 feet high. From the top an excellent view would be got of the YANGNYU valley and the slopes on the far side, and though there was cloud about today, we managed to see a good deal, and were able to locate approximately a number of villages whose whereabouts we had not known before. Mr. Dennehy took bearings with a prismatic compass and made a map.
