Ghyaru, on the high trail.

High trail, looking back to the Way to Heaven, across Ghyaru and Pisang.

Looking forward to Ngawal.

From here on you’re completely in the rain shadow of the Tibeten plateau, and the landscape starts getting really dry and weird.

In the valley below, in Humde, is the only airstrip in the area. When I was planning this trek I thought if I really couldn’t do this we could fly out of here. Not really – planes come about once a week, weather permitting, and it requires some negotiation to get a place on one.

The temple above Braga (with weird landscape).

The temple in Braga. This is a common stop before crossing Thorung La, to ask for blessings. Your donation lets you take pictures in this sanctum sanctorum, and gets you a braided thread that has been blessed – and you’ll probably need all the help you can get to get over the pass...

The valley between Braga and Manang.

Approaching Manang.

Leaving Manang on the road to Thorung La, with the Gangapurna glacier.
