The ascent is long and gradual, and you can never tell if the next hairpin will bring the peak, or just a view of a further few miles of snaking ascent. At the top of the pass marked with piles of rocks you have a beautiful sight at Yamdrok Yumtso, a 60 km long freshwater lake edged by snow-capped Himalayan mountains.
