Then suddenly we were there:
up in the high Himalayas.
Our route took us over the Khardung La Pass: at “18,380” feet above sea-level, claimed to be the highest motorable road in the world.
While I was bemused,
Robin was ecstatic: he had never seen snow before!
This was a place of blindingly bright light, heavy military presence, snow-chains and a recent deadly avalanche.
All experiences new to me, as well..
