Time to give ache to the feet.After resting for two nights in Tshoka we headed towards Dzongri Same with choco bar,we started our trekking before the heat to the ZONGRI,it is not a long trekk for the mountaineers but for normal person person it's unsigh.Zongri,the place where one way go to HMI's BASECAMP and the other one to GOCHELLA.BINGO,I encountered with the snow for the first time during this trekk. Peers made fun of me when they got to know that i encountered with snow for the first time in my life. No matter,first or always i was just extreme happy to be there and someday we have to start new things so that's my first.Allover,mates were just helpful for me.There is neck of woods called Pehdang,in the middle of Tshoka and Zongri,where we got ourselves packed of freezing cold.FUNNNY THINGS, boiling down the snow with you piss is one of the best feeling ever.We enjoyed every steps during trekk and reached ZONGRI crossing a wide dried river.Again the same things,pitching tent and explore the surrounding with the LOLLIPOP. OOOOPPPSS!! The very bad thing happend in entire tour was,unknowingly gasping the fetid aroma from buddies' shoes. ZONGRI tO BASECAMP:
Dzongri Pass situated at around 14,000 ft has one of the most breath taking views #OnTheRoad
Next morning we were off to Dzongri, with a lunch break at Phedang. This day, we all had to slog like crazy. It turned out to be a tough march with no forewarning from our guides. Needless to say there were some not-so-kind thoughts directed towards them for not warning us.We reached Phedang in time for lunch, and broke out our food packets.Now, our camp food was really good, but our packed lunches kinda sucked, with the vegetarians of the group generally getting stuck with a box of Frooti & boiled potatoes!We ate, packed up, and trudged on for about 2 hours more, surrounded by mist and clouds, till we reached Dzongri, only to realise that our camp was little less than a kilometre further ahead, since all the campsites at Dzongri itself were already taken by other groups enjoying their "rest day".Oh, and we also bumped into a super cute husky Skye, who was also doing the Goechala trek with her human a day before us. Cuteness!
Dzongri (13,024 ft) to Thansing (12,946 ft)We had to cover around 10 km this day. We descended till Kokchurang after which we gained altitude while passing through an enchanted looking forest.
Rest day at Dzongri for acclimatizationMost of us woke up in the morning and went to Dzongri top to a get a view of the splendid sunrise in the Himalayas.
