|Tilicho Tal - the highest lake in the world.|
We started walking before it was light, to be there early - apparently the wind is vicious later!
Watching the sun come up behind the mountains was magical.
|Path across the landslides.|
The walk up was strenuous and slightly scary, having to cross landslides with lots of loose scree, and a huge drop below if you missed your footing.
|Strange shaped eroded rocks|
We saw amazing eroded rocks and the deep, deep river valley. (Actually the same river that passes by Besisahar - but so different!)

|Tilicho Peak, just over 7000 metres in height|
At the top the prayer flags were torn to tatters by the wind.
The stunted grass was decorated with hoar frost.
How different this landscape is; the colours, the vegetation, the terrain. I've never seen anywhere else like it. All around were beautiful snow-capped mountains. I hope you find the photos interesting.
