13-October-2017, 5:00 a.m., Lachen to Tangu:
Leaving our cosy bed in Hotel Zomsa Residency at Lachen, we are off towards Tangu which is our final stop before Gurudongmar Lake. Dawn is on us with slightly overcast skies. I guess our relation with cloudy Sikkim is everlasting, as even the last time round it was cloudy for the entire duration that we were here, with the exception of the day of our departure. For now I hope the Buddhist prayer chants playing on our car stereo might get the attention of the weather God and he may smile upon us.
