    Getting higher and higher to the North one comes across the lake Tso Chiang Gongma on 5.180 m and finally reaches the pass Lago-la on 5.400 m after 2,5 – 3 hrs. after departure. From here one has a great view over the Zanskar range to the South and the Saltoro Range to the North. For the decend one first has to cross a little glacier/snowfield, depending on time of year and snowfall how long it is (beginning July 2011 1,5 km). In the end the snow turns into water and gurgles down the valley to turn into a river named Rhakura. On 5.100 m one comes across a huge valley of violet flowers. To get down quite a bit to lower altitude one has to leave several camping possibilities and arrives slowly slowly to an old shepherds place called Rakuruk Doksa at the junction of two valleys. On the last decades some landslides brought down huge boulders which covered the old track and were quite dangerous for horses. But there has been a lot of work down by making the track easier for the horses and also put up stone piles to navigate following trekking group for the best way through the boulders. Camp at 4.720 m after a last river-crossing (there have been 2-3 before, too).
