Picture 1 leaving the Lakshmi Lodge in Kungsar, early
morning, towards the Tilicho Lake
Base Camp, taking the high trail. The high trail took us up to over 15000
and then drops 800 meters (2700 feet) to the Base Camp lodge, in one sharp
descent which took 45 minutes. Shot of the descent coming up.
Picture 4 the path we returned by (faint
line going horizontally across lower portion
of the picture from right to middle, crossing the bare slopes and through
the dark rocks, then disappearing around the ridge).
The high path we are taking is not in view.
The white ridge in the background is the Great Barrier.
Picture 5 looking back towards Kungsar,
showing the path we walked.
Picture 6 The path we are taking is the
faint yellow line across the top of the small brown ridge to the
left of the small snow peak at the right side of the picture
Picture 7 The peak at the end of the uphill
path. I climbed up the extra 30 feet to the
flag pole; chris refused to! The views were awesome.
Picture 8 some shots from the end of the
path at the edge of the descent.
