Had they fortified the position, they might have made it stronger than the karo la.
The sortie to the karo la was one of the most brilliant episodes of the campaign.
I accompanied the karo la column, and must rely on hearsay as to my facts with regard to the attack on the mission.
The karo la had been enormously strengthened, and was occupied by 2,000 men.
Such was the position of affairs when the karo la column returned.
The Tibetans came down from the karo la and impressed the villagers.
From Ralung, ten miles this side of the karo la, two roads branch off to India.
The karo la was the strongest position on the road to Lhasa.
The possibly exciting effect the force on the karo la might have on the inhabitants of Gyantse had particularly to be considered.
The second action at the karo la was the end of the Tibetan resistance.
