Now, we have 12km downhill to Karputar and then we cross the Modi River and reach Bhorletar. It’s a small town with a couple of shops for local settlements. We will have some snacks here in these shops and learn about some local culture. After lunch, we have some easy riding flat and down to Sisaghat where we will stay in the local but very basic guesthouse.
