Road on to Tsomorori

Few other picture taken around the lake Tsomorori



We finally make to tho Korzok Village. My wife is still down, I sit besides her late into night, giving  spoon full of water every 10-15 minutes. the electricity is erratic and we have  torches and candles. She wakes up in the morning slightly better. We leave her and go around the Village.

Situated against a backdrop of High mountains on one side and Tsomoroiri on the other, Korzok situated at abort 15000 feet , is a settlement of few houses mostly of mud, where a decent bathroom-toilet is a luxury. The Changspa - Nomadic in nature and exposed to harsh winters hardly require a bath .


Life in Korzok revolves around the Monastery. Famous for the  Korzok Gustor festival, the building itself is badly in need of renovation.



But one gets to see the enchanting lake from within the precincts  of the monastery





After a early breakfast, we leave - retracing the route which have had splendid memories etched- though tough. After a journey of about 5 hours we reach Karu - here she take  a little of Curd rice , and for the first time in two days she seems normal - its a huge sigh of relief.
