Mac didn’t want “Ony a’ they spicy food”, so mainly ate boiled vegetables and the above veg burger.
The rest of us enjoyed all sorts of lovely Indian and Tibetan-style food.
The most interesting meal was at the Netuk Hotel, in Gangtok (the capital of Sikkim). After a drink of fermented millet, which was twice filled up with hot water, we enjoyed some nettle, some fern, some meat and bamboo & rice. The next evening, the meal was equally delicious.
The food on the 6-day Singalila Ridge trek was very good. Each day, one of the assistant cooks would catch up with us with our lunches. The first one was a packed lunch.
