Getting acclimatized to this height we start to ascend early in the morning. On this day we enter the remote hinterlands of the mountains where we cannot find any teashops further so we carry plenty of water for ourselves. We have the option of either taking a climb over the hill northwest of Chhukung over Nuptse glacier; the other option is to walk down the valley of Bibre then to the high trail above Niyang Khola. On walking further we can have the stunning view of Island peak-valley and the jagged ridge of Amphu Lapcha. On ascending along the east side of Niyang Khola valley through stony trail we reach wide basin dotted with frozen lakes. We leave Chhukung after 5 hours walk through the trail Kongma La. We reach the top to see the prayer flags fluttering to mark the pass at the ridge. Now the descent begins which is the difficult and challenging experience of today’s trek.

The most importantly, tipping is at travelers discretion and should be relied on good service that does not form the part of wages for your Guides, porters, and crew although they are very much appreciated. In Nepalese culture, a tip is an accepted and honored way to say thank you (Dhanyabada) for good service. Normally the tips are offered at the end of the trek and this is best done as a group. Most groups will give the trips in farewell dinner on the last evening or last day of the trek, to mark the end of the trip. The amount of the trip is entirely a personal preference that may be more or less depending upon your perception of service quality, length of trip, budget, and appreciation of their work. It is important to Discovery World Trekking crews who professionally take care of you all the time during the trekking, inspire excellent service and offer enriching journey- the trip of once in a lifetime experience. We ensure that all of our crews including guides and porters are paid well and treated fairly with respect.
