Day 3 Yubeng

On our third day of our Yubeng trek, Coulson, Cyrus, and I hiked up to the glacier fed lake below Meili Mountain (Kawakapo in Tibetan). The rest of the students stayed in Yubeng to rest and explore for the day. The hike took about 3 hours to get to the lake at 13,000 ft, our highest elevation yet. It was steep and tiring but offered a cool view of the glacier close up, a glacier that was covering the lake just 8 years before. The boys played on the snow and then we headed back for a dinner with some western options, such as spaghetti with tomato, onion and garlic.
