Hi!  The day before yesterday we passed the pass Gondogoro-La, 5700 meters high. The pass is difficult. The approach from the Ali camp to the foot took 3 hours.  The weather was not very good - there was light snow. 

By the time we reached the saddle, it was about 5 am. The descent was also steep. We went down on fixed ropes.

We spent the night in the camp Khuspang at an altitude of 4600 meters.

The next day we passed one of the most beautiful passages to the village of Saicho. And today we are in Skardu.
