Dec 24: Climb to Darjeeling(part 2 of 2)

14kms from Teesta, at 1:30, the worst part of the climb was done with.
This included 12kms of climbing and more than 1500m of altitude gain!
Indeed the hardest climb ever in my life! To give you an idea of how
difficult it was, the first 10m downhill segment was at 1910m.

The climb continued in a gentle manner after that all the way till
Jorebungalow(2250m), about 9 km from Darjeeling. After that, there was
a gentle slope to the welcoming arms of the hotel touts in Darjeeling!

Settled in Hotel Chanakya, '24 hours running hot and cold water'. All
fine, except that there is low voltage, and hence no hot water!

43 kms took me the whole day. I'll remember the climb for a long time!
