Wildlife along the way…

So just a quick detour from our day-by-day recount of the trek to share some of Simon’s photos of the wildlife we encountered in the Kailash area.  Hardly a few hours would pass between sightings of some gorgeous wild herd or flock.

Black-necked cranes:

Wild ass (or Kyang in Tibetan):

Our enchanted wolf sighting beside Lake Rakshastal:

And it was the height of spring aftertall:

We also came upon herd after herd of goa, or Tibetan gazelle.  Their populations appear to be in a good way in western Tibet!  Any good shots to share, Si?
