Prayer flags at the Pass

While we were in Tibet we visited Nam-Tso lake which sits at 4800m, but the only way to get to the lake is to go over the Kong-la pass at 5190m. Unfortunately my enthusiasm to take these photos left me completely out of breath in the thin air and I passed out in the Landcruiser and missed out on the lake completely! The little I did see was really cool though :-)
