Ghyaru, on the high trail.
Looking forward to Ngawal.

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 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...
