The rise of Nirwa La is easy (just a false flat to gain a foothold on a grassy plateau …), the second is of another accabit: steep and interminable but at 5555 m the reward is up to it. A spectacular view of the mountains of Mukot himal, Dhaulagiri and as a bonus almost the entire Mustang is offered to us. We descend through large bends in a scree slope to reach the river valley of the Lhanhimar khola. In the early afternoon, crossing the Jungbenley Laou Kok La at 5,125 m will be a formality before descending the jet-black schist slopes and reaching a haven of happiness with trees, yes, yes! It has been 14 days that we had not seen one … Beautiful plunging views over the Kyalungpa khola valley, the villages of Ghok and Sangta with at the bottom some selected and colorful portions of the eastern Mustang plateaus . And mouflons all around which colonize the raised slopes. What happiness!
