Sept 29: This group has completed the trek and is back at the base camp at 10.30 a.m. this morning, Sepi.

Sept 30: This group is moving towards Gurdum today. They will be back to Sepi by tomorrow.

Oct 1: This group is moving towards Sandakphu today. Yesterday, they couldn’t trek to Phalut due to heavy rains. So they stayed put at Molley. They are expected to return to Sepi by Oct 7.

The travel route for Sandakphu-Phalut trekkers is clear. It is unaffected by yesterday's flash floods between Jorethang and Siliguri. But trekkers may face some delays caused by traffic due to heavy rains.
