15 7 Tashi And Jerome Ryan On Langma La, Trail From Langma La To Our Camp [35 of 37]
Around noon, after sitting on the Langma La pass for over two hours, I decided to continue, the rocky path plunging in zigzags before flattening out, and plunging again on a slippery scree slope to a one kilometre long beautiful green lake flowing over the lip to a place at the base of the pass. This place was aptly named Lhatse (4900m). As I continued, I could see both camps were already set up about 500m apart, well below the trail. About two and a half hours after leaving the pass, I strolled into camp.
