To begin our day, the route leads toward North East walking on a gradual uphill slope, we pass through the thick rhododendron and magnolia forests, and the pastures with numerous clearances that are used for summer grazing. In this area, the change from lush Tama Koshi to the mountainside of Rolwaling Valley is very apparent. We will pass through the small settlement area of Kyalche and reach the wooden bridge. Crossing the bridge, we will make it to Dongang where we will stay for the night.

From Beding onwards, we experience thin air as the altitude increases and the cold chill from the surrounding high mountains gets into our bones. Our trek today will be a short walk of three hours or more along the Rolwaling River, as we take it easy on this high-altitude terrain with its impressive vistas of the surrounding high landscapes and the snow-capped peaks. Our walk continues slowly to acclimatize, just before Na the valley opens out into a classic, glaciated U-shape. On reaching our overnight camp at Na, which is a scattered village and a temporary settlement of the villagers of Beding and beyond, it is a summer yersa (grazing pasture) and potatoes are grown hereabouts. There is a roughly built monastery around here. Ahead, up the valley beyond Na, the majestic summit of Chobutse 6,689m rises above the Tsho Rolpa at the confluence of the Ripimo Shar and Trakarding glaciers. We just relax & relish these stunning surroundings.
