Here are a selection of photographs from today’s trek along a dusty road from Jomson to Kobang ( 2560m)
The family picture was taken after a girl of about 3 years old struggled to fill a water container to take it to her house – so I helped her carry it. She held my hand and led me up some cobbled streets, through a cow shed and into her house to meet her parents. The whole family then posed for a photograph before I gave the girl a bit of money for working hard!
