Splendid pastures

Pakistan © Eric Bonnem

“My porters are less than confident, as some of these passages are extremely narrow even for one person. If you find yourself faced with a flock of yacks of even goats, it would not be able to bear the weight and we would quickly fall several hundreds of metres. We pick up the pace and do a loop of the pass in just under three days when it supposedly takes five according to topographical guides. The perfect chance to immerse oneself in the dry, wild mountain. Way up high in 4,600m, in the realm of snow panthers, animals graze throughout the summer safe and sound in these splendid pastures. A 6,000m summit calls out to me, but I don’t have time. I will return.”
