They were waiting for some vehicles to go to Karzok. And we were going that side, and we had free seats!!


While speaking to the checkpost officer we realised that there are no entries of TS in his log. The bus from Leh side had not yet reached Mahe. So we decided to wait for the bus as it was the most ideal bet for TS to reach Mahe.

By 13:30 the bus came and as expected TS was in it. After a quick exchange of pleasantries we started on our journey to Karzok. And Yes, we gave those beautiful ladies a lift too.


Baby Alto, who never gave his navigator seat to anyone from Kaaza, gave it away! Another beautiful lady, infact a pharmacist at Korzok, as his co passenger. Baby Alto changed forever From the last in the convoy to the second position, Baby Alto from now on scaled the roads and rubbles like a skilled rally driver.


It was like Baby Alto growing up! Now onwards thou shalt be called as the Handsomest Alto!!

In 2009 when we took this turn to Karzok, we were pleasantly surprised to see a lot of Ibex on the hills. This time I told HVK there should be some on the hills, and immediately we see them on the hills. We stopped there for a while, with all of us getting trigger happy!

I took out my 70-300, and Ibexes became nearer! Light was very tricky and all of them were in the shadows!!

Ibexes on the hill slopes. How do they walk around there?

NED was insisting that I take out my 500, but I was not sure about the result as the lighting was very tricky. Moreover handheld shots and the time taken to set it up all did not make me inclined towards it. But NED persisited and I had to do something.

Ibexes more nearer

After a good negotiation, we got a good deal and we moved towards the tent camps and dumped our luggages. After a round of quick hot tea, we all set out towards Tso Morriri lake before it gets dark.
