Chiling to Skyu, 3180m to 3300m
We actually started with a long taxi ride on a little road that seemed hug the cliff side from Leh to Chiling.?? Our crew was made up of Amanda, me, Anne-cecile, and Gale (2 friends from Navdanya).?? To start our hike we had to cross the river and the only way across was with a Tyrolean traverse (see picture).?? We then headed out on a nice 2 and half hour hike through the high desert to our homestay.?? Once we had settled in and had a chance to relax we visited a 10th century monastery with a local who we met at our homestay.?? After dinner with the family we headed to bed early because we wanted to be up at 5am so we could hike before the mid-day heat.??
