4 3 Jerome Ryan With Tingri Plain, Nomad Tent With Tingri Village, Hills Of Tingri And Cho Oyu Bathed In Evening Light [10 of 41]
Ben and Jerome Ryan hiked about two km across the Tingri Plain and climbed a small bare brown hill about 500m high. When we got to the summit, we looked out on the vast Tingri Plains criss-crossed with small rivers with the houses of Tingri tucked in below a small hill. Chris and I walked into Tingri and then back to our hotel as the sun dropped down in the sky. I spotted a nomad camped in the plain before Tingri. The setting sun brought out some beauty from the barren plains and hills with the light and shade of long shadows getting more and more yellow/red as sunset approached. The clouds parted briefly and Cho Oyu snuck out to reveal itself at sunset. Beautiful! After a hearty dinner, we slept soundly.
