Leaving Lo Manthang, the trail steadily climbs two small passes before plunging through a spectacular canyon to Dhi village.

Leaving Dhi, we continue along the river bed to Yara and thence to Tashi Kabum, a not easily accessible cave housing a beautiful stupa and some paintings in Pala idiom. Possibility of fossil hunting in the riverbed below the cave.
