2 trekking cold

On the afternoon of day 3 Naveen took us for a walk to a frozen lake.
Day 4. Lily and me braved the cold and went up again for another gorgeous mountain sunrise. Well worth the effort and frozen body parts.
Later we walked back down to camp 1, the path being somewhat frozen at times.
Day 5. We walked back down to yuksom, to relative warmth and a very much needed shower. I had been wondering what the pooey smell that had been following me around up the mountain... Till I smelt my pants. The same clothes were worn for trekking and sleeping for 2/3 days running... So the shower and semi clean clothes were fantastic...so was the beer!
Day 6 wasn't needed for the trek, so Lily left for Delhi and I walked around Yuksom... Consisting of very steep up or downhill paths... So still much sweating despite the cold weather.
The Dzongri trek was an experience I will never forget. Hopefully I've not bored the shit out of you all too much.

Well, I‘m not bored Simon.
Keep writing your blog.
Great photos.

Definitely not bored - we were getting worried at college by your lack of posts and missing your adventures. Brings excitement into our dull teaching days!

You seem to carry a few hats around with you. Well, three.

Sounds like a very very very tough Boot Camp! What an amazing adventure, the views are fantastic.
