Another day of gradual ascent as you cross the tree line of pine, Deodhar, dwarf rhododendrons and enter the meadows of Bhoj Gadi. Watch out for the sunset where you get to witness the alpenglow of the mountain ranges.

The most exciting day with the walk on the ridge for about 2-3 hours. As you walk on the ridge, you get the sense that the mountains with 250 degrees are trekking along with you. From the ridge, you descend down towards the meadows of Pushtara.

Descent through the denser mixed forest section compared to your first day. The trail is much more secluded and can get a bit tricky. So watch out for the trails going across. Keep your eyes open and do not get lost on the trail.

Please note: The distance between campsites may vary by 100 meters depending the weather conditions and the route you take. The altitude may also vary by 100 feet for similar reasons.
- It is mandatory for trekkers to carry a copy of their photo id along with the mandatory documents of the Medical Certificate and Disclaimer form. This is required for trek permissions.
- There are no facilities at Sankri. Do not leave this or any other gears till the end.
- The stay at Sankri will be on our campus where we have a lodge.
- On the trek, you will be staying 2 in a tent
- We have a Cloak Room facility at the base camp for excess luggage. Do not leave behind any valuables in the cloakroom.
Please note: Twin sharing tents may not be available in May, June, July and August. This is because raw materials for making tents are sourced from different countries. But their export has been affected due to international unrest. This has led to a global shortage of tents. Having said that, you'll still have comfortable space as these tents have been designed to accommodate three trekkers.
