This is a striking and vast rocky area that gives way, from time to time, to large segments of bluish ice. We struggle on towards a rocky spur, just beneath the Dolumbau glacier. It is now quite a venture to access the glacier. Then, we climb up a rock face to set a rope for the porters, helping them to scramble up the 160m before accessing the campsite area.

Then the trek continues on steadily through moraines and gentle slopes, crossing, from time to time, some glacial areas.
