Mt.Phari Lapcha

The peak rises from yak pastures above the village in a uniform slope to the final summit pyramid which is an undistinguished snow and ice slope. The peak looked a little more interesting from Ongre and can been seen as a curved ridge, with the face above Pisang being the truncated southern end of the mountain.
