Coming to Lhasa Again
Hats off to Leo and Andy.
Looking at the condition of the two engines which had a dip yesterday when the boatsflipped nobody could haveimagined that we would have them running next day. They were full of sand and water butLeo and Andy did a great job of ripping them apart of cleaning and refixing. By morning we were on the river as usual.
The route was amazingly beautiful with nature proudly flaunting its atum colors. We passed by the small town of Dongta and later a large town called Lang Shan which had a sizeble muslimpopulation. Whitewaters were a contantfeature today as there were rapids one after the other.
As expectedafter yesterday’s mishap all threeskippersof boatswere navigating the rough passage with utmost cautions manner. After Lang Shan the trees changed to Conifirs and lots of icey water termbutries cascading down the the mountain slopes to merge to Yarlung added to thebeauti of environment. For the night we camped by the riverside near Lang.
