A warm welcome…

A warm welcome by Deepen at midnight is what I appreciate the most. Hot food was ready when we reached here after a hectic day of travel from Siliguri to Khecheopalri. A bright morning with wonderful view refreshed me. I will never forget the village walk and the interactions I had with people in the village. Spent some good time relaxing with young cheerful people of the village listening to their singing.
