Suggest follow trek on Google Earth.

Mountain View lodge at Kyanjin Gompa (3800m)

Lodge at Rimche, such friendly people I stayed there on both the up and down journeys. On the return I arrived at 8:45pm after a "forced" march in the dark and in pouring rain - lateness was due to Flag festival at Tsergo Ri on same day

River crossing, safe but exposed

Road seemed to zig zag forever...see zigs going into the clouds
