Trek to Chutanga (3050m)

On arriving at Lukla, we meet the trekking crew. We then head eastwards from Lukla. The trail crisscrosses through pristine hamlets and thick forest along Kalo Himal Ridge. We must stay aligned with our specific route. Otherwise, we may deviate from the target destination. At the time of winter, snow makes us transverse steep terrain. But during favorable climatic condition, the trail is usually straightforward. After 3-4 hours of trekking, we enter Chutanga.

At Chutanga

We spend two memorable nights at Chutanga. This gives us sufficient time for acclimatization prior to confronting Zatrwa La. We can indulge in leisurely trek to a small 4000m peak below the Zatrwa Teng Pass. Excellent views unveil as we glimpse over the valley of the Dudh Kosi and the picturesque trail zigzagging towards Zatrwa La. After exploring, we descend back to our camp at Chutanga and succumb to complete relaxation.

Trek to Tuli kharka (4300m)

The trail crosses the Kalo Himal Ridge which separates the Khumbu from the Hinku Valley. Further ahead, we transverse a comfortable path showcasing a cairned notch on the ridge with a collection of prayer flags at an elevation of 4450m. En route we may encounter yak herders. The views across the Dudh Kosi towards Karyolung and the Lumding Himal are very impressive and so is the view across the rolling foothills east of the Hinku Valley. Half an hour below the pass is a huge boulder which marks our campsite, Tuli Kharka. 6 to 7 hours of trekking finally take us to Tuli Kharka.

NOTE: If conditions are particularly bad, we do have the option of crossing a lower pass to the south of the Zatrwa La, an alternative which involves 2 additional days of trekking.

After several ascents for 4-6 hours, we approach summer settlement of Tangnag as we cross a single-plank bridge at Gondishung. We halt for lunch at this spot. Lying in its vicinity is 200 year-old gompa resting beneath a massive boulder and a number of crude mani walls. The trail offers an outstanding view of Peak 43.
