Peaks around MInya Konka [Gongga Shan], 1999

This is a great view of the many peaks in the Minya Konka range, taken from the top of a ridge in the valley to the nrth of Yulongxi.

I came across this place by accident after we lost our horses in the night. Climbing the ridge to try find them, I stumbled on this pass with a cairn. It was a real slog to get up there, as it must have been 4200+ metres and the air was very thin.
