2003 Caravan 6666
Why has Beau joined this same trip 3 times, and Don 5 times? Seriously!
Thikse Monastery and Gompa, a short drive from Leh.
We began at Shang Sumdo, a few hours drive from Leh. The scenery and colours were stunning from the beginning, below too.
I (Nicola) climbed the hill above camp for this crinkled view.
What a view! Nearing the top of the Kongmaru La, the first pass.
Kang Yatse, a 6400m peak. Sometime!
Our second pass was the Zarlung Karpo La, and we descended
into a valley of quite different character.
We trekked thru more spectacular country over several days to reach the road at Pang, which is the next series.
