Tshochena to Jichu Dramo || Tshochena to Jichu Dramo Lunana

Approx 14km, 4-5 hrs trek/ 230m ascent, 140m descent
Following the shore of the lake, we climb up to a ridge at 5100m. Here you are surrounded by a 360-degree panorama of snowy peaks while, far below, you can see the Pho Chhu descending into far away Punakha. Dochula pass can also be seen in the distance after short descent. The path makes several ups and downs over small rounded hills and because of the altitude, walking is usually very slow. The trail descends past a glacial lake and climbs up to Loju La pass (5140m). The path goes across a small saddle at 5100m into a wide glacial valley and then descends gradually to the camp at Jichu Dramo (5050m), which is a small pasture land and our highest campsite on this trek.
