The time was 5:36 am, temperature 10°C. We started off for Gurudongmar Lake. 85% of the road was unpaved. The weather was pleasant, again the views were mind blowing, the roads were tough and challenging. We reached Thangu, the last stop where you could grab something to eat before heading off. Be absolutely sure to stamp all your passes on this route. From the last checkpost to the lake, surprisingly the road is smooth. Few moments later, we reached Gurudongmar Lake, the lake was frozen, the sky was clear, and the sun was out. Our day just got better.
We left for Lachen and stayed one more night. Everyone was happy, the sense of achievement was overwhelming, so we ordered some beers, and raised our glasses for the amazing journey we just completed.
