Place : kaza (3600m)
Temp : -4.0 cel
Plan : kaza to Nako village(3700m) 100 km
We didn't book our hotel in nako so we need to reach early there to find any available hotels.
We started by 10am and stopped at dhankar monestry. From here we trekked for around 2km uphill to reach dhankar lake (4400m).
This is not an easy trek.. it is very straight and you need to climb from 3800m to 4400m.if you plan to do so carry alot of water and cover your face, don't rush.
It will.take 2 hours to complete this trek, but itz worth going to see sacred lake.
We then stopped in tabo to see tabo monastery . Tabo monastry is the oldest monestry with 1000 years old monastry. We reached around 3pm to tabo and stayed for 1 hour and started to nako.
We reached nako by 7pm and we need to find hotel for staying.
We tried asking reo purgril and few others but all were full and their was no electricity and water in these hotels.
Water in Nako gets frozen in pipes and hence you dont get water after checking in the hotel. Finally we reached nehru home stay and the owner helped us a lot, in his home stay their was no room available but on request he took us to Tashi home stay and the lady owner said their is no water in the rooms.
We told if there is any way we can get water, she told she can fetch 3 buckets from near by running tap.
After seeing the point, me n my friends went with buckets and filled for themselves. The temperature was 0 degree Celsius, but we were happy that we got 3 rooms for sleeping in these cold conditions.
We had dinner by 9.30pm and slept. This night was the coldest night of the trip where the room temp was 1.3 degree at 5 am and i was not able to sleep.
When measured outside it was -8 degree Celsius.
