Tea with Nomads

On day three, after crossing a long stretch of wilderness we encountered our first Zanskari people, nomads at the base of the incredible, monolithic Gonbo Rangjon. Awkwardly approaching at first, a tiny girl ran out to study us. She bounced and bobbed around us staring in curiosity and then led us back to her family’s tent where we were given delicious tea made with pure yak milk (straight out of the yak) and loaded down with sugar. (Sugar and fat were exactly what we were craving after the long stretch of wilderness behind us.)
