    Asia

    The hike to Vasundhara falls was only another five miles but after the long trek earlier that morning I was moving slowly and tired. Arriving, I dropped my pack and sat in the dirt exhausted. Over my shoulder and up the hill a voice invited me to tea. Sitting on the rocks was a shaggy haired man wrapped in a blanket motioning me to come up and join him. I grabbed my bag and hiked up to his stone shelter and took the hot flower tea that was prepared by his attendant. I smiled and nodded at him also. He pointed at the flowers that the tea was made from.

    Road at the Top of the World-Tibet

    The morning was filled with sunshine.  As we continued our drive, vast snow covered peaks start breaking the horizon. The ground was brown and rocky. We crested the first of many la (mountain passes). Shishapangma at over 26,000 ft loomed large. A gate of prayer flags welcomed us to the Tibetan Plateau, the rooftop of the world, at nearly 16,000 ft in elevation. A half hour further, we left the main road which leads to Lhasa and began the dusty, bone-jarring crawl towards Kailash. Miles and hours battered us and fine sand in the form of dust floated into the cab of our vehicle. We tied bandannas around our faces to keep the dust from our lungs.
