The pass of Kyzyl-Art, Pamir, 4280 m

The hystory of this shot is as follows...
The day before, we started off from Lake Karakul and moved towards the Kyzyl-Art Pass(4280m). For that day we drove only 37 km, but this taking into account climbing more than 900 m.

By the evening, approaching the height of 4000 m, it became more difficult to turn the pedals. More precisely, it just turned out strange, as if there were no forces for it. Although the mind understood that we did not travel much, we did not dine very long ago and we should have strength.
But they were not, as it turned round, like the oxygen around. The fact is that in the mountains at altitude the air is thin, and there is less oxygen than at the see. And the lack of oxygen affects the work of muscles.
I draw slowly, at times stopped and sat down to rest on the ground. When I realized that there was no more time to rest, I tried to go, but I could not, but simply walked by rolling a bicycle. And when the shepherd`s house appeared(which is present on each pass, as it turned out later), we went there, it seems, to treat ourselves to tea at the hospitable host of Talaybek. But I was so homey on the rug in corridor and fell asleep that further progress on this day was impossible...
In the evening the guys woke me up, we had supper and spent the night there. I woke up in the morning, went to wash behind the house to the stream. Here, and met me a young yak, as well as this skull, one of them.
Thus, in the history of creation of this shot, mountain sickness took an active part!.)
