I had a wonderful time at this spot, watching the remaining light of the sun fade and being replaced by the rising moon behind me.

There is not much vegetation in this dry valley, so wherever it is it gives such beautiful colors of autumn to the otherwise dry and barren landscape, and I was here at the peak of colors which can be seen throughout this vista.

As I sat here some locals were walking uphill back to their homes, but apart from that it was no sound. With the sun down the air got cold fast – it is after all almost 4000 meters above the sea here.

This monastery, or gompa, has, like most monasteries, a name with many spelling variations to the spoken name of which Kee and Key are the most common.

Elevation: 3997 meters
