First climb to 4800m was eased by a lift up the pass but was then a steep climb and getting enough air into my lungs was a problem. However my snail approach paid off and I was not the last up! At the top there was a vast collection of colourful prayer flags and tame yaks for photos. Below us was a bright blue glacial lake that we then biked around. We then stayed in a rather sad town where all the official buildings were aggressively Chinese in design.
