On day three, awaking to the glorious view of the Dutkunda mountain and continuing their trek to the next campsite at a farm past Sibuje village, the group caught their first glimpse of Mount Mera. A magnificent sight to behold and knowing that there was still at least 6 days of more trekking before reaching base camp.
Day four was a more difficult leg of the journey with some teeth grinding moments when steeply descending a vertical cliff face which deposited the trekkers 140m below. The feeling of nervousness was quickly replaced by amazement at watching the porters descend with 70kg worth of equipment and supplies on their backs, and slippers for footwear. Completely mind boggling. After then passing by a beautiful waterfall 300m high by crossing a fallen pine log they reached camp at Chatarapuk before nightfall. The porters, usually ahead of the group, navigated through the dark and arrived two hours after; showing a mastery of the mountain trails.
