The trek starts at Potters Hill. From here, we descend through resplendent Oak and Rhododendron groves to Chadwick Falls, a waterfall trundling over a cliff in the Summer Hill gorge. A level walk from the falls and a stride across a ridge at the village of Sanog starts the sharp descent to the tiny hamlet of Chamoh, an ancient village situated amidst picturesque terraced fields at the beginning of the Glen valley. Here we meet the Glen rivulet and trace it upstream through some enchanting forests and breathtakingly beautiful glades, the silence only being punctuated by the constant chattering of the stream or the calls of the plethora of bird-life found here. The enchanting beauty of Glen entices one to halt and savour a well-deserved picnic hamper accompanied by some delightful bird watching. After lunch and some rest starts the ascent back to the Hotel. A short up hill climb from this “little valley of paradise” connects to the Annandale road ascending to The Cecil where one can be picked-up by vehicle to be drivenback to the hotel.
