Baralacha La

We're ascending Baralacha, accompanied by the usual slow moving lorries

Tiresome to overtake, but at least we're still on tarmac...for the moment

We're enjoying the beauty of the wintry landscape around us, and still feeling quite warm

We make it! Such a contrast to my previous visit in a raging blizzard at sub-zero temperatures. My joy at being there in such wonderful conditions is contagious and I get the others to agree to a short trek across the snow and rocks for a summit photo

Up we go

We made it!!
