Some more photos from the Dhotray-Tonglu-Rimbick-Timburey-Pokhritar trek. I can't help but keep looking back at these. Not much to write about today, except that the damn monsoon finally hit kolkata and I'm liking it. Like the photos? Tell me about it in the comments. Have a great week ahead.

P.S. If you ever visit the Darjeeling region for a trek, be sure to check wikimapia. Trace the route and you will find nice homestays( with contact details) to live in the villages. That's the best way to enjoy the typical village-life of the place.
