Frightened yaks

After the wonderful first darshan of the Lord at Hore we started the parikrama of Holy Manasarovar.  This day we traveled from Hore to Chiu  completing one half of the Manasarovar parkarama. When we left the sun was high on the sky and the waves of the Manasarovar shone like Diamond.  As we proceeded  we saw lot of birds in the lake including Golden Geese. Midway we reached  Rakshas Tal  the twin of Manasarovar , both the lakes area situated between Himalayan Ranges and Gurla Mandatha  ranges. The waters of both these lakes  provide a contrast. 

Later we  proceeded  between Gurla Mandata and the shores of Manasarovar and Sundar took close shots of the peaks of Gurla Mandatha ranges.  We also crossed the Quhu Gompa in which  we stayed two days during the earlier yatra. Thus enjoying the beauty of the Manasarovar we reached Chiu Gompa where we are going to stay for the next two days on full moon days. When we reached Chiu the sun was setting and the lake shone like a golden ball in that and the ambiance was really marvelous. The parikrama route remains almost the old dirt mud road , a part of the route from Taklakot to Zaidi is now a tar road.
