Ladakh: Day 11

Mountains & Monasteries itinerary:

"The big day! Leaving the pastures we keep climbing to the snow line and moraine to the top of the Lasermo La pass at an incredible altitude of 17,700ft! The effort put into the climb is rewarded with commanding views of the Eastern Karakoram mountains to the North, the Stok Range to the South, and the sweeping valleys on both sides below. There could be snow at the pass and pack animals may need to be unloaded and loads ferried by our crew. From the pass, we'll descend the Phyiang valley to our camp at 14,750 ft. Average: 6 - 7 hours walking."
