Descent from Kanji La (so many stones!)




Reaching the Kanji-La Togpo, which flows west toward Rangdum.


To reach our camp we had to cross the Kanji-La Togpo in the late afternoon. For this crossing I rode this horse, which is seen here crossing back for a better pasture on the opposite side of our camp. Unfortunately, this friendly horse was killed by a snow leopard a few days later.


The upper Kanji-La Togpo toward Pudzong La (pass #9).


Glacier along the way.
