The beauty of the landscape was was lost on me at the time when I took this photo. I had been slowly hiking uphill all day and had reached 4600 meters. The last two tents stores were out of food so I was hungry and did not feel like I had enough calories to make it to the tents at the peak in the distance. Also, I didn't know if they would have any food even if I made it. However, huffing and puffing from the altitude, I made it to the tents and was revived by vegetable filled steamed buns. There were the best steamed buns I had ever eaten!
