Race > Yara (3530m) – Luri (3850m) – Dhe (3900m) – Tanggye (3240m).

We start the day by walking uphill to Ghara (3800m), where we will make a tea break and continue to the extraordinary cave-complex of Luri Gompa. Luri houses an exquisitely painted stupa and some rare 13th century Pala style images of unorthodox Buddhist masters.

We start the race at the foot of the cave and head down the same route down to Yara and then across the southerly plateau towards our first river-crossing in Mustang – on Damodar Khola known for the abundance of ‘Shaligrams’, the ammonite-fossils –  good luck hunting for them while keeping up your time! Then the trail goes uphill to a ridge and descends to another plateau and on to Tanggye. Night in lodge + local house + possible tent.
