Keen to join a trek? Snow may block the pass in which case plans will have to be changed. It will be cold and there will definitely be snow underfoot. The altitude gain is quite rapid and the days are all 5-8+ hours. Dates are fixed (I fly from Kathmandu on the 19th).
FEB 12: Drive from Kathmandu to Dhunche (2,030m/6,660ft).
FEB 13: Trek Dhunche to Sing Gompa (3,350m/10,991ft).
FEB 14: Trek Sing Gompa to Gosainkunda Lake (4,380m/14,370ft).
FEB 15: Trek Gosainkunda Lake to Tharepati (3,510m/11,516ft) crossing over the pass (4,609m/15,122ft).
FEB 16: Trek Tharepati to Kutumsang (2,470m/8,104ft).
FEB 17: Trek Kutumsang to Chisapani (2,300m/7,546ft).
FEB 18: Trek Chisapani to Sundarijal (1,350m/4,429ft) and drive back to Kathmandu.
