The trail down to the small stream was really fun. But hiking up the other side was also very steep as we came down. Now we are in Ladakh the land of many passes and so it will be, we need to cross 7 more passes till Lamayuru. Parfi La pass was the first one of the total 8. In the evening after the camp was ready, we always had a little snack before dinner. Salad, Papadam, Soja and beans balls and a bit whiskey, the Apero was served. We got up every morning 6:00 o’clock, which was kinda early. But Manish brought us always Chai with enough sugar in it, so it was a boost to get up. The Hanuma La pass was again a big one with 4700 meters over sea level. On the 4rd picture you can see, how big this all is. Thomas and Manish can’t be hardly seen on the trail. The trails before Lingshed were so fun to ride! In Lingshed the monks had to try out the mountain bikes. The second time in there life to see bikes. Last time it was when I was there a year before for the Redbull trip with Rene. We stayed one night in Lingshed.
