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!

On reaching Dzongri, two of our group members had their Blood Oxygen levels less than the ideal. Shortly after that, they started showing some of the symptoms of Acute Mountain Syndrome (AMS) - like nausea, headache, loss of appetite, vomiting etc.
