This time we were accompanied by our friends David, from Addis Ababa with whom we'd been trekking in the Simien Mountains in 2015 and the Danakil Depression earlier in the year, and Vicky who hadn't been (proper) camping and trekking before, but seemed to enjoy it.

The Deosai Plains are the second highest plateau in the world, over 4,100m surrounded by 5,000-6,000m peaks. We camped near the northern entrance to the Plains for a few days and did some day walks and drives to acclimatise. Then we walked out of the Plains via the Burji La pass back down to Sadpara village.

Points of interest are marked on the map, and here are some Wikipedia links:
