Before heading out for the day, i woke up early again for sunrise, something which I can’t get tired of watching. The more I see it, the more it’s etched into my memory on how breathtaking the Himalayan mountains are.

Sunrise on Pelling

 

Himalayas

Bit of a bumpy ride expected today. We were heading in our 4×4 deeper into Hee Bermiok, to a village and Rhododendron sanctuary about 2 and a half hours away from Pelling.

Hard labour.

Wasn’t sure what the tiers were from afar

Rice paddy

No. Thank YOU!

Waterfall enroute

Came across this random waterfall and we stopped for a break. Nearby stood a lady watching us tourists snap away and she was more than happy to have her portrait taken. It came out as one of the best photographs taken of the trip.

Colours and contrast was amazing.

Tribal culture in Sikkim is slowing disappearing, this photo marks a reminder of what it was and is. I’m worried that in my children’s life time we may only be able to see this in photographs.

Road work and play.

 

Orange season. Picked up some on the way.

 

The type of road we had to slowly drive through for awhile to get to the village.

Reaching our destination at Hee Bermiok. Ecohuts erected for travellers run and managed by villagers as alternative source of income.
