Long descent to reach the old Tibetan monastery town Olangchun Gola (3191m). Slight detour early on as path was tricky to find. Last section on new road. Relaxed afternoon with another very welcoming family.
Thudam to high camp (4470m) which Shane and I thought was too much ascent in one day. Had to trust Tim but it was an emotional day. Had mild AMS in the evening (headache) and took ibuprofen/diamox combo.
Rest day in Thudam (3556m) spent washing and eating. We camped outside the house of the family who fed us. Tibetan porridge (tsampa) and dumplings as well as dal bhat. Extremely remote and poor village. Glad that our money went direct to them.
