The valley of the Dgelo river. 11 km. (the beginning of the pedestrian part)
Today is a busy day, because we see real nomads-mountaineers, get acquainted with the peculiarities of their life, decoration of yurts and ailas, economy. And they do not even realize how interesting they are to us-lovers of mountains and photography. What do we know about nomadic life?
From the cold they will save the hearth in the Yurt-the center of the house. He is supported by women. On their fragile shoulders and cooking, and washing, and comfort in the house. We saw women washing clothes in the street or cooking in steaming vats. Here, as nowhere else, appreciate family and kinship, for without family to cope with the forces of the mountains is extremely difficult. Their life is not easy-cold, dirt, poverty, but on their faces often there are smiles.
Smoke from the Yurt on the background of “Smoking” mountains evokes memories of the slowness of life in these places.
Smoke -.. smoke, this joy, smoke, these trees, smoke, this grass, smoke, this whisper, smoke, this forest, smoke, these mountains, smoke, this vision, smoke, this silence, smoke, this road, writing like a living snake, smoke, this dream, smoke, this house, smoke, this wizard’s dance, smoke is the embrace of Medusa… According to the photographer, if there is no limit to your fantasies, then working with smoke is for you.

Today we will see peacefully grazing yaks, or, as they are called, sarlyks. They feel best in the mountains. The whole body of the Yak is covered with abundant hair with thick down, which helps him to endure any frosts. The Yak is able to carry heavy packs on the most impassable mountain trails or even completely without roads, in the snow. But we will not torture the animal and load it with our backpacks. Everyone carries it with them! After all, our goal is only photography.
