this last part of our trek in shimshal was to 'ghoskun' an idyllic oasis 200 some kilometers west of the chinese border. winter grazing grounds for the shimshalis. it sits on the headwaters of the braldu river and at 3000 some meters much warmer than shwerth.
we spent two days soaking in the sun, fishing, playing cards, eating great food, rock climbing, reading, writing, sleeping under the stars, and plain old r&r.
if youve walked it to shimshal pass dont miss this fishing expedition---albeit for fish that take all day to catch in most primitive ways and no one gets to eat more than one fish the size of a small hand.
