The path from Dingboche to Lobuche gently descends to the Imji Khola river near Thukla. This is where we lost our way and had to navigate through big boulders to reach our lunch spot. This is probably the last village on the trekking route. Above 4000 mts you can clearly notice the change in vegetation from trees to shrubs.
Also, the elusive snow leopards are known to frequent this village and prey on unsuspecting cattle.
