text: Great hills surround the camp. Yongimti stands out, an isolated cone, and its exposed summit explains the mist and wind we encountered there. This evening as the sun set the hills were stained a deep plum colour and the sky was a delicate cyclamen. The snows are still a glittering line across the sky.
