We had hardly walked for 15 min when we were passing some porters carrying huge amount of load on there heads/backs.
The first 30 min is all the way down and now there are some stairs to walk down till we reach Chhepling village. After that it becomes a bit flat and, a bit up and down for around an hour till we reach a suspension bridge near the waterfall. We had lunch at this village named Thade Koshi near the waterfall and suddenly it started getting windy and cold with the clouds everywhere. We started walking towards Phakding and reached there around 2:30pm. This was our stop for the night so got a room, re-arranged my luggage and attended to the paining legs.
It started getting cloudy and soon started raining which resulted in the temperature going down very quickly. It was almost freezing by 6pm and everyone was shivering, jackets and sleeping bags were quickly out and people were assembling in the dinning room. Dinner was served around 7-7:30pm, I had a good portion of Dal-bhat and retired to bed inside my sleeping bag. The rain kept pouring the whole night and temperatures plummeted further down. Woke a few times at night at the sound of lightning and heavy rains but was able to get some good rest and sleep.
