Thin Ice

From Samagaun, we explored a glacial lagoon named Birendra Tal (with Manaslu peak on the upper left) on our way to Samdo.  It was covered with a thin layer of ice.  As tempting as the clear water was, it was a bit too cold to jump into for our taste.  There were, however, a few other hikers who braved the temperature.  Our guide mentioned that the glacier here has retreated a lot since the first time he started guiding to this region 5 years ago.
