I didn’t feel like trekking in the morning today.. Yesterday’s climb to over 5000m made me super tired, I could feel my quads for the first time since a looong time!
We had only 300m of elevation ahead of us, very graduate walk, but still.. It took us 2,5h! So during the rest of the day, we just relaxed.. Sunbathed, read books, slept a bit, listened to music.. So our energy levels could go up again😊
Chukhung is a very small village, lies in a valley under Lhotse and the Island peak (the two main mountains) and the views are amazing. From here it’s possible to trek to Kongma La pass or through the Island Peak BC to the peak itself.
We are doing the Three Passes trek, so Kongma La pass it is! It takes almost 9h to cross the pass to get to Lobuche and we are already starting at 5am with breakfast. Let’s see how it goes tomorrow, but honestly I can’t wait!
