We in fact get pleasure from the inaccessibility of facilities in the area and absolute nature. We can decide on to go via any of the probable trails- either taking a climb over the hill northwest of Chhukung over the moraine of the Nuptse Glacier or we might walk back down the valley to Bibre and follow a high trail above the Niyang Khola. Just after some walk there are great views of Island peak valley and jagged ridge of Amphu Lapcha. Ascending along the east side of Niyang Khola valley, we turn west and walk through the sloppy stony trial. We enter a wide basin dotted with small frozen lakes. The trail rises over loose scree gaining the Kongma La after about five hours we leave Chhukung. Upon reaching the top, we seen cairn wrapped in prayer flags,-marks of the pass.

Today, we will have a short trek compared to other day. The path will lead us to Dzonglha which branches off from the core path some space from Lobuche. After crossing a stream we approach through a branch and later twisting round to the wide gruff river bed of the flow, the track runs crossways and climbs the edge to the front. From the greeny ridge in front, we can see towering heights of Ama Dablam and Kangtega-Thamserku while Tawache looms outstandingly ahead. Pheriche village is also noticeable down in the valley floor. As the ridge changes direction northward, the vast Cho La Lake spreads below Mt. Cholatse. The lake flows with us over a long extend until we move down to a wide basin. The trail climbs up descends steeply to another broad basin. After walking for half an hour we cross a unsteady bridge and we reach Dzonglha. We will be staying at Dzonglha for a night.
Day 13: Cross Cho-La pass (5368m) Overnight Thangna
The trek today is one of the challenging trips; this embarks on as we incline through a spur widened westward from Dzongla. The lane slides downhill to a basin transversely which strolls a whispering stream coated with ice. We reach the top of the basin in an hour readying for the accomplishment on ChoLa. The higher we reach the view back gets ever more enchanting. The Cho La Lake comes into sight and the Ama Dablam in its pyramidal personification heads over a range of mountains on the south as Cholatse soars on the west. Mountaineering the incline is not easy; it is steep, but made worse by boulders over some of which we will have to scramble. The last climb to the ChoLa can be a little risky as the trail curves round. Upon getting to the top, we see prayer flags, hung across cairns, flapping in the strong wind. Landscape of majestic peaks in all directions is hallucinating. A bit of cautiousness is needed now when passing through Thangzak if rocks are glazed by ice. We arrive at Thangnak, a rather large small village.

The path climbs soothingly up the edge of Gokyo Ri and then meanders hazardously up a finger of gray scree above the northwest corner of the lake. We precede early down from the Gokyo Valley; we depart from the main trail and turn to Renjo La trail by Dudh Pokhari. We reach to the Renjo La after about three hours where a incredible panorama lie ahead. The Everest itself, Lhotse, Cholatse and Taboche can be seen glittering in the sun. Charismatic image of ice on the trail while descending down can make our way down a bit risky. Alongside the way, we see Relama Tsho and Renjo Lake.
