This time the work took us to the northern part of Sankhuwasabha district for feasibility study of a hydroelectric project. In my 10 years career as a geologist, I don’t remember any site tougher and more physically demanding than this one. We could reach the headworks area of the proposed project only on the 6th day after boarding plane to Tumlingtar Airport. There are not any human settlement in the project area that forced us to stay in tents most of the times. We were not the most organised to embark for such area. And all we could manage for food was Chinese bucket noodles bought in Chyamtang village – for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Those noodles were easy to make, good to taste and we could even use its container for drinking tea afterwards.
I always thank a person who invented noodles!
