After lunch the trail ascends all the way to Meghma, 2,600 m., a Nepali village amidst a forest of rhododendron trees and bamboo groves. Here one can also get to see some fine specimens of Himalayan cobra lilies, orchids and daphne plants. If the caretaker is around, visit the Hoshel Dechenling Gompa, a Nyingmapa monastery built in 1953, now supported by the local Tamang community. A magnificent view of Kanchenjunga awaits you. From here the trail ascends to Tonglu (meaning the hill of fire). Tonglu, at 3070 m. overlooks the entire Darjeeling hills and offers another breathtaking view of the Kanchenjunga range including that of Darjeeling, Kurseong and Sukhia Pokhari towards the south.

After lunch the trail ascends all the way through dwarf rhododendron forest to Kalopokhari, meaning black lake. This route is also rich in Primulae species, Impatients falcifer, Owl-eyed Impatiens, Sorbus, Pyrus, Enkaithus and Roscoea alpina. Your camp will be set beside the dark crystaline waters of Kalo Pokhari lake shimmering in the breeze and surrounded by alpine trees with the mountains looming across the horizon.
