Here is a panorama from the area. This photograph was taken from a pass of the G318 National Road towards Litang.
The first moments of the hike part began with a stunning view on Mt. Zhara Lhatse (5820m) - a mountain I was talking about in an earlier post.
The next monastery was Bhari Gompa. I finally reached it in the late afternoon and after a four-hours-crossing of a snow covered pass. Due to its position on a sunny south slope and above the timber line it gave me a pleasing welcome.
From Goeno Gompa it is only a foot march to Bamei and to the main road.
