Mon 12th Sept

Good day yesterday. We climbed up a long valley to a bleak snowy pass at 5100 where it was even too cold for the yaks. Then traversed alongside another glacial lake with beautiful blues and greens. The bare mountains are like instant geology lessons. Climbed up another 4300 pass where the electrity pylon was decorated with flags. Then a fine ride along a high valley with ripe yellow barley and fortress like houses. 

Spent the night in  gyanste where Younghusband had his stronghold. Now turned into a anti Britsh museum.  Did 104 km yesterday. Slept well.
