30 years ago: 19 March 1982, Jomson Trek day 16, Kalopani

Friday 19th March 1982:  Kalopani and surrounding area (6 miles)
After an excellent breakfast of oat porridge and fried potatoes I was out from 08:00-17:45.  A pleasant casual day birding at Kalopani and Lete with excellent weather and lots of ‘sit down’ stops.  I saw my first rhododendrons in flower.  I now really like the See You Lodge (I hadn’t been too impressed with it on the way up).  My lazy day continued with the paucity of this diary entry.
