Glacier Korona. Aksai gorge.

Climbing Aksai gorge in Kyrgyz ridge.

“And life is easy, under a backpack
Walk, don't think about anyone,
And there is no glory ahead
And there are only rains ahead.
The day died beyond the pass,
There are no people behind the pass."

Yuri Vizbor. "Hamad-Daban". 1961.
