Little is known about Shiveet, mostly because not much is happening here. Tourists come here to see the glacier in season when it is possible, otherwise it is a place for meteorologist and archeologists. We found a driver who agreed to take us to a couple of interesting places for three days and hit the road. We traveled along rocky dirt tracks, through rivers crusted with ice that looped through the landscape and past bouncing baby yaks frightened by the sound of our passing van. We spent the first night in the shadow of Shiveet Mountain, with a family of yak farmers. Their home; a simple wooden house set in a pasture with a river snaking through it.
