... look at what's below if we miss a corner. I think if he slows down we'll not be able to get moving up the hill again.
The lake sits around the 4,400m altitude but the pass to reach it is at 5,000m. The sign at the top of the pass says, 4,998m but it's not too much effort to walk past it up the hill a bit to say that I stood at 5,000m.

Day 8 - The final day of the tour was pretty nondescript. We packed our things, stocked up ...
... which certainly has its share of new buildings and fancy western type stores and Chinese stores, but so, so, so much of it is still very Tibetan. This is where Buddhism is happening. And where people have so much beauty and pride and humility.
Lhasa is the capital of Tibet, a treasure trove of manasteries pallaces and temples. There's a Chinese Quarter and a Tibetan Quarter, filled with bustling street markets and the Joh=khang Temple. There is also ...
