Mitlung Kanchenjunga

Today trail is not so smooth as yesterday cause it passes through some ascending and descending portion. Most of such up and down portion are on way to village of Sinwa starting from Mitlung. From village of Sinwa it is again downhill all the way to another village of Tawa. After Tawa trail again turn out to slight uphill forcing us to ascend some height. After some slight up we will found one suspension bridge that connect us with Thiwa. Trail passes through spectacular landscape with terraced farming and surrounding ridges of hill. Entire lower section of Kanchenjunga on both north and south consist of similar landscape. Chirwa is beautiful village with settlement of Limbu Ethnic. This small village consist of few teahouses and lodges along with basic mountain teashops as a retail stores for local. People are exceptionally cheerful we can feel different environment on each and every mountain region of Nepal, people are honest, cheerful and hospitable. It is recommended to use at least one trekking pole as we had already discussed they help to distribute load from your knee especially on downhill and uphill.
