I stopped at this view point in order to see the marvelous glaciers of Tilicho Peak. I could hear the avalanches in the background as I made my way to the top when I spotted a tiny tea shop. Walking down to catch a different view, I noticed how beautiful the tea shop looked in the distance. I realized that from almost any perspective this great place held a magical kind of beauty.
