The trek goes steep climb up continuously upto Dolma La high pass (5600 m) for about 4 hours and steep down to Gauri Kunda and upto flat valley for about 2.5 hours then after you will walk all the way flat land for about another 2/3 hours. That’s why; it is the tough & longest trek of about 8/9 hours. We should cross the high pass as early as possible in pleasant weather before strong windy at day time. At the top of Dolma La, you can even find the place called Shivasthal that is covered with holy flags and the personal related things like clothing, ornaments. There is strong belief in Tibetan religion that whatever you offer here you will get it in heaven after your departure from this world.

Then further walking down for a while, we will take break for lunch. This downhill trail is not easy due to rocky & loose stones so we should walk very carefully. Then after, you will catch soon flat trail that reach to Zuthulphuk. Also please note, the travelers who are in horse ride should also walk for 2 to 3 hours in between trekking while you are coming steep down after Dolma La Pass. In Zuthulphuk, we will have guesthouse or fixed tent with bed and blankets. No worry we have a warm sleeping bag with us.
