The dense forest is a great vantage point that produces astonishing glimpses of Mount Gaurishankar. This region is largely inhibited by the Hindus. However fluttering prayer flags and Chortens are ominous signs of Buddhism that coexists here in harmony.

Following the route of the Trakarding glacier, we pass through the rocky trails giving way to the bluish ice. It’s a slippery trail as we try to be at the Dolumbau glacier.
