Tagathan to Mulkarkha was an easy uphill trek of 3 km to an altitude of 7300 ft. Our guide, of whom I have not spoken yet, showed us the way to the homestay. Mong Lepcha, as I happen to recall his name, was a young man of strong built, who guided us all the way from Lingzey to Mulkarkha and again back to Lingzey. Later on back to Kolkata, we would sometimes say “Hello!” to him over Facebook!Anyway, so we spent the afternoon in our rooms, playing cards and chatting. In the evening we walked through the village road because we had nothing else to do. Mulkarkha is a spooky place I must tell you! As the night fell gradually, covering everything in darkness, we all felt a negative energy drawing us, and in haste returned to our homestay.
