You walk for three days through the lower Markah Valley, after the descent of Gandah Lah you'll find a scree slope on your right hand.
A brave new life finding it's way through the weathered rocks. The area is very desolate and only the toughest vegetation can survive. I was so happy see this young plant poking head head through and was amazed that he choose to come up it a field of stone. The contrasting colours complete the pic for me.
