Continue pushing higher today, until we cross the Tsimo La pass at 4905m. If it is clear, we may be able to see high peaks as far as Sikkim and Nepal. After a stream crossing, we climb steeply 800 feet along the stream’s side; conditions can be icy so we will take it slow. As we approach a new valley, we gradually ascend past grazing yaks. After 3 hours we reach our pass, the Tsimo La, with views of Gancheyta, Tsenda Kang, and Gangla Karchung mountains. We’ll have lunch below the pass, then continue on for 3 more hours, up and down to camp just below the peak of Gangla Karchung (6301m), right beside the glacier at 4940m. Overnight at camp.
Trekking distance: 16km / 6 – 7 hours
