Walking 4:00:00 [2]

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.

High camp to Lumbha Sambha Pass (5159m) and down to another riverside camp (4200m). Perfect weather and views of Makalu and Kanchenjunga. Took another diamox in the morning and felt good all day.

(sick)

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.

Thursday Nov 9 #

Note
(rest day)

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.

Walking 8:30:00 [2]

Continued to traverse the hillside through lush forest including bamboo and rhododendron. Tough trail all day - narrow and overgrown. Took longer than expected and we arrived in Thudam after dark.

Later start as chapattis and curry were made for packed lunch. Long hot ascent (1000m) after crossing the river. Lovely mixed forest. First night camping in clearing known as kharka camp.

Hatiya to Linggam with very nice lunch stop at a small shack on the trail. Hornet attack after lunch was really shocking. Liz and I were both stung three times. Long sore day.
