"Very nice place. Very cold, though... Climbing was worth it. OK, we have to climb over the snow. From the top, we could see China. Army men are always on guard , so don't try to cross the border. The cafe was there, we were glad to see, but it was waterlogged. At least we could get a hot cup of tea and some cakes.☕️ Overall, very nice experience. Totally worth it."
