Karzok to Kibber Photo Part II

Karzok to Kibber via Prang la
Part II

Small trail passes through these vast plains and equally big nalas. Our luck they were all dry.

The valley is getting narrower, the glacier is moving down and the weather is getting bad.
The camping place is still 3 hrs away.

In the narrow valley the water was snaking its way down. The trail crossed the river and climbed up the slope.

Our Camp IV -Kharsa Gongma , was on the opposite side of the Pare chu , where the sun has just reached.

The snout of the glacier from where the Pare chu begins its journey.

Slowly we climbed up the scree slope over a zigzag trail and reached the plateau of the Prang glacier.

Wind was flowing full force and sleet falling with equal speed made our movement up towards the pass difficult.

Horses had to be pulled and pushed up this ice slope, just below the pass.

View left (east) of Parang la as we reached it.

View right (west) of Parang la which is marked by some cairns and prayer flags flapping violently in strong wind.

The trail down into Himachal was initially over this type of terrain.

After the Borogen camping ground the trail moves towards the Parilungbi river gorge.

Yes - we have to reach the Parilungbi river , then walk in the gorge and then again climb out to reach the camping ground.

Camp V at Thantak (4800 m) , but where is the water.
Only a small tickle of water was flowing from the mountain side.
