10th day completion of Parikrama and travel to saga (580Km)

When I woke up on the third day of trek, I could not move my knee, it was tender and was paining a lot. I tried to move but it was very difficult. So I decided to travel by pony that day, luckily who ever wanted pony we got that day also. The pony was available for 100 yuan that day Compared to the earlier days trek route this route was plain with little undulations and is the easiest of thee three days. Also now we have to trek upto Trungto only from there we can travel to Darchen by vehicle. Zang Chu River was flowing silently down and we trekked  above in tha easy soiled path enjoying the beauty of silvery  Gurla Mandata ranges and the azure Manasarovar and Rakshas Tal lakes and it was a mesmerizing site.   During this day's trek we get the full darshan of Gurla Mandata ranges as well the beautiful view of Manasarovar and Rakshas Tal from  a higher elevation. The weather was also pleasant and all of us complted the parikrama upto Trungto easily and without any difficulty. 

As Mr. Mukherjee of our group  undertook the parikrama without wearing black glasses his eyes got affected and he applied eye ointment and it took three days for his eyes to become normal. So it is essential that one use UV protected black glasses especially when  we trek in the vicinity of snow or when it is snowing. The pathe we trekked had been widened so that in future vehicles can ply up to the base of Dolma. One interesting thing was they were  constructing road on the other shore of the Zang Chu river also.   We all reached Trungto  within two hours and the vehicle was waiting for us.  We thanked the Lord of Kailash and the lady who is residing in His body for being so much benevolent to us not only they gave us nice darshan also made us complete the full parikrama in trying conditions.
