Holy Mountain

6 August 2010. Holy Mountain

After another 18-hour day of driving, we arrived at the foot of the "Holy Mountain" in the county of Pulan. It was already midnight by the time we had a quick dinner.

Road construction made it slow on the go, and the wet weather all around made river crossing detours difficult. The IVPP team, which had previously spent two weeks in the Lunpola Basin, is fatigued and impatient. One can only hope arrival in Zhada will bring morale back up.

The damp night in Holy Mountain was a bit uncomfortable, but the LACM/FSU group is in good spirit. We hope the weather holds up for our half-day trip to Zhada, where we could prepare glue and equipment for fieldwork tomorrow.
