Day 9 & 10: Chukhung

When we woke up on Day 9, our mindset had already shifted from strenuous climbing to leisure descending.

Day 8: Kala Patthar

Day 8 marks the highest point we reached in our trek: 18,514 feet or 5,644m. Say hi to Everest!

Day 7: Dzongla to Pyramid

After an exhausting day crossing Cho La, we, still in recuperation mode, found ourselves a wonderful little high mountain refuge called Pyramid.

Day 6: Cho La Pass

Our toughest day on this trek. It was a bit scary at times. I am thankful to have gone through it safely and get to blog about the experience.

day 5: Up the Ri

Going up Gokyo Ri once is obviously not satisfying enough once you turn on the beast mode…

Day 4: Dole to Gokyo Lake

The two days following our resting day in Namche Bazaar, we climbed almost 15 miles and gained over 7,000 ft in elevation. In Day 4, we pushed ourselves further going from Dole to Gokyo in one day.
