Heading to the Pass

Ghusang had been a welcome stop. I had my evening meal of noodle vegetable soup on the roof of the lodge over looking the mountains.

What disturbed me was the constant shaking of a small bell – which I thought was a goat that had ran into our compound. Looking down the ladder I saw a small black and white pup with a pink collar and a small goat bell attached. That wasn’t evening sorted!

About an hour later his owner came out of the lodge to take him home. I think that animals make us better humans.

We reached Ledar today – 6 lodges at 4200 metres. A couple of days ago we lost the road – more like a wide track but it allowed transport to carry items to the lodges. From then on it’s either carried on backs or animals. There has been a distinct difference in quality of lodges and food. However, it’s still shelter and the food is ok. I’m trying to avoid fried dishes and meat. Which limits the menus but the noodles are pretty good.

Sunshine and beautiful mountain ranges allowed
