Double Dare

Double Dare

india stamp

We had been forced to stop twice because of swollen glacial rivers on this far-flung shortcut between two Himalayan mountain passes. Each time, we had to evaluate the risks of attempting to cross early the next morning, against turning back. But the situation was different now. We were very low on supplies as this was already day #4 of an alleged 3-day trek, and by 7 a.m., the torrential meltwater was already waist-high and rising by the minute. The horseman, clearly frightened, was unequivocal: “Water heavy! River no crossing!” But then, he misguidedly added: “but if you crossing, me crossing…”
