Early in the hike, Day 1 or Day 2, Ashraf mentioned making each other a playlist. Of our two other companions, Jamie didn’t like hiking with music and Mads was content with his Danish techno.) We each spent some time working on ours, and then some two weeks later we traded mp3 players as we went over the 5,420 metre Cho La.
Ashraf’s playlist was really good, and helped me through a long day of climbing over mountains and across glaciers. And for my part, here are the ten songs I chose.
