Pools of water, one of this is the sacrificial pool where a cockerel is sacrificed annually. Occasionally ice can be seen.



Actual summit seen from plateau



Late trekkers on the plateau



The plateau slopes gently up to the summit. Had to stop for breath now and then



Beginning part of plateau, Sayat-Sayat check point. Steep!

Thanks for your comments Ipohan and Oldtimer,

My daughter always criticise me for my poor composition. I am using a Nikon D90 DSLR mainly as a point and shoot.
