As we head towards Salka from Tjaktja cabins, it felt like it was going to be a walk in the park but…
the trail gradually looses its soil and all we could see was stones, rocks and boulders. Amazingly there were still signs of flora here and there and it started raining as well
After about 4 km as we reached the Tjaktja pass, the rain stopped and the sun came out. On the top of the pass there was some kind of an emergency cabin and a toilet.

This view from Tjaktja pass towards Salka was jaw dropping. I just couldn’t get enough of it. I lied down there for about half an hour and just stared at it. It gave me goose bumps and I felt so blessed and fortunate.
Before i left the spot I decided to take a selfie 🙂
Down into the valley from the pass, the trail once more transformed into an an easy and slowly descending hike. It was another 6 km down to the Salka cabins.
After about 3 km we took a break.
And we started spotting reindeer 🙂
Soon I was glad to see Salka cabins.
Salka cabins were set up perfectly surrounded by mountains.
Salka shop where i once again loaded myself with dry fruits, jelly beans and chocolates for the next day.
The cabins felt very homely
This time I decided not to waste any time and after a quick pasta dinner with a can of coke I went to sauna. I spent over 45 min in there. It was like the best sauna ever 🙂 When i got back to the cabin, it was so nice to see everyone there, chilling, talking and having a great time in the candle lights. I made a cup of tea and joined the party:) We all went to bed after an hour for yet another adventure lying ahead next day.
