This evening I finally took the antibiotics. I feel very weak and have diahorrea. Still, I made it over a 4850m pass. I think a rest day may be on the cards tomorrow.

I slept badly last night. I just couldn’t get warm. I also couldn’t bring myself to eat much. This all lead to a snail-paced crawl up the mountain.

It was beautiful climbing into snowy regions. There was a beautiful mountain lake near the top and amazing views at every turn.

I stopped in the tent village down from the pass and hung between awake and asleep. I forced down some food and continued down the valley on a road that was sometimes prestine and sometimes very bumpy.

    Top of the world views, so pristine. The erosion along the river is interesting. Sorry you got a bug, no fun. 😦
