Suddenly you will observe the splendor of hardy trees and a ground that is full of meadows. It is Seri, and the camp is just a few more kilometers from the alluring place.

The sky is vivid here and the camp is a closed valley and is not similar to the previous camps.

Day 04: Training Day

After reaching a height of 4200 meters, it becomes vital to take a day halt. It is quite dangerous for a person to cover distances so quickly as it leads to sickness. Let your body adapt to the environment and enjoy the lovely place. You can go to Chota Chandartal for a walk and can even just chill and relax at the camp. A briefing session will be organized in the evening to explain further plans.

  • Trek Distance: 0.6 Kilometer
  • Trek Duration: 4 to 5 hours
  • Trail Type: Moderate to steep Climbing

Load Ferry means when you go to work at high altitudes but at the latter part of the day come back at low altitudes to sleep. You will carry all the vital types of equipment along with you to the higher camp and later will return to base camp 2. This is because high altitudes are different from the plains so it is important to return to lower levels. The lunch will be packed on the way and have enough water. 

Base camp 2 is at the Dhanuan Pass and the location is visible from Base Camp 1 due to its orange color. Initial 200 meters of the trek you have to go through moderate climbing, further 300 meters there is steep climbing and the rest of the 100 meters have a flat slope. The slope is covered with snow, so you have to go slowly as it gets slippery. Be careful while walking as there are deep cracks. After completing your lunch, you have to walk down to base camp 1.

Due to snow and climbing, there are chances of slippery surfaces so make sure you come along with your guide and team.

The load ferry rule is vital in the case of trekking at higher altitudes as it saves a person from any sort of health issues. Walk slowly and along with the team as the area is covered with snow and there are chances of falling. You can have a good time in ice sports and skills. The night will be adventurous at the Summit Camp.

The trek to the summit attempt will begin early in the morning so have enough rest at night. The initial few kilometers are steep climbing so climb slowly and carefully on snow. A few hours later, you will see Indrasan Peak. The real problem is the lack of oxygen due to a surge in altitude. The trek is manageable but there are many deep cracks on the way. The last few kilometers are a flat walk to the summit. You can rest and spend some time at the summit but later on, return to base camp 2 due to oxygen problems.
