Just came down from the mountains after four days three nights.
It was a hard climb up to Ala-Kol lake and very steep climb up to the pass. Scary was the descent over snow-covered scree on a steep face. And camping in such cold conditions was excruciating. Note to self – next time, don’t visit later than August!
More of the hike later. Meanwhile here’s a photo of Ala-Kol, taken while my fingers were still nimble.
