7300 meters peak in Tibet near Nepal border

We did not find the name of this 7300 meters peak inside Tibet near the border. Beautiful icy cold water lakes are found in many Himalayan mountain ranges in northern Nepal and in Tibet, Yunan, as well as in Pakistan, India, Bhutan and Myanmar's Kachin state. Our next expedition to Nepal should include a trip to such a lake between 3500 and 6000 meters elevation.

We spent one night in Kodari in a small two storey guesthouse. The ground floor was the restaurant and kitchen. The room with a door that could not be closed costed only about 2.5 US$ a night (Jan 1999). Also the door left a 9 inch gap at the top and people could see inside. The toilet rooms were outside, on the river bank. In the early morning at about 5 a.m. I woke up to see (through the window pain) lorries and buses preparing for their new day journey in the misty and chilly atmosphere.

Barabise as we passed by on the Arniko highway from China border to Kathmandu. At the town we crossed a bridge to come to the western side of Bhote Kosi river. Soon after that point the river flows into Sun Kosi river. In 1999 there was a small hotel in Barabise. Interesting places are a fort, temples, terraced paddy fields, and villages.
