After a while of trekking, the valley becomes broad and flat as we approach towards Na village. Na is a scattered village that has an abundance of tea houses and offers good camping grounds for adventure-seeking trekkers.

Today we will take a day rest at Na Village for acclimatization and exploration around Na village.

We will follow the path that climbs over to Yalung Kang and we will climb steeply along the rocky glacier part to Ramdung base camp. During our climbing, we will have super stunning views of Gaurishankar, Melungste, Yalung, and several snow-capped high mountains across the Tibet border. We will set up our camp as soon as we reach the base camp and make necessary checks regarding our health conditions and climbing gears for the successful climb to the summit of Ramdung Peak.

We start early with the aim to reach the summit before noon as the strong winds after midday can create obstacles to climbing the peak. Following the footsteps and guidance of our experienced climbing experts, we will overcome minor technical sections and head towards the summit of Ramdung Peak. Once at the top we are rewarded with stunning views of Everest, Gaurishankar, Melungste, Yalang, and other surrounding high peaks. After spending some quality time at the top we will descend following the same route back to Yalung Glacier for our overnight camping.

After having achieved the summit of Ramdung Peak, we will return our footsteps and descend over the icy and slippery trail, using crampons we head back all the way to reach the Na village.

We will descend to a bridge over the Tsho Rolpa. From there, we will continue to follow the main path that ascends south valley. Along the trail, we cross through Chhukyima where there are a couple of teashops that are run by locals Na Villager. We will continue towards the end of the valley and climb an uphill for a magnificent view of the Tsho Rolpa Lake and surrounding peaks. From there we will descent to Kabuk.

We start early today because our trail leads through the crossing of the glacier which is best before the sun gets stronger. We cross the plateau to the further eastern corner above the glacier before descending a loose earth trail towards the southern edge of Trakarding Glacier. From here the trail climbs up to reach the northern side of the glacier. Once on the north side, we follow the trail that leads to the snout of Drolambu Glacier.

We make an early start for the crossing of the challenging Tashi Lapcha Pass. Following the trail that goes over the glacier, we will climb a natural ramp that heads for the crossing of the pass. The pass is a rocky ridge often snow-covered and icy. We will have magnificent views of surrounding peaks from the top of the pass. We will make a gradual descent from the top to reach the Tashi Lapcha Camp.

Today we start our trek by following the trail that descends down the rocky slopes to the campsite of Ngole. From there we will continue our downhill journey all the way towards Thyangbo Kharka. Thyanga Kharka has a few tea houses.
