The steep Chagoria route!
Victorious, on Day 2, overlooking the Gorgeous Valley
Just before sunrise, about 6 a.m., after a 3 hour trek, we reached the summit, Point Lenana, 4985m. Pure joy.
Zachary, one of the porters, and our driver, negotiating a treacherous dirt road to reach the gate of the park. We're in a 1960's Land Rover. We bottomed out and rocked about so much, I felt like I needed a helmet and a harness... the level of skill needed to drive this vehicle is beyond my comprehension.
