In the saddle - departing Lao Yulin

In the saddle, originally uploaded by jiulong.

This is from my first trip to Minya Konka in 1996. It shows my Khampa Tibetan guide, Gerler, as we west off from his home near Lao Yulin. It would be a long day trekking up the gloomy and barren valley towards the Djesi la (pass). About half way through the day there was a fork in the track, with the left hand track heading over towards Hailuoguo.
