Day 6 - View back to Ghyaru     Ali and Cat scout ahead

Hundreds of prayer flags reach up from bamboo poles on rooftops, fluttering their printed entreaties in the breeze. Semi-terraced, and apparently barren stony potato fields descend down the slopes into the valley. The mercurial river snakes far below, its roar now only a dull rumble. Alpine choughs drop out of the heavens, wings folded as if in prayer, as they plunge downwards.
