Random photographs

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!

  1. I remember that tarmac’d road! So out of place and we thought a welcomed relief from the dirty rocky roads we’d walked on, however, walking on hard concrete after “softer”ground isn’t easy! Fantastic views from this place., as I recall not too far from Tibetan boarder if you fancied a climb over some big hills?
    Great photos and nice blog


  2. Feeling extremely grateful sitting at my computer in AC. Thank you for taking me places I will never visit.
