Our Campsite is situated in a green area surrounded by big boulders and some water streams.

Today’s trek is more gradual. We have to cross a river. Later we hike through forest. The last hour of the trek goes up again. We will pass a temporary settlement of farmers, who are staying here during the summer period with their cows. Our campsite of this day promise amazing views of the surrounding Himalayan Mountains. And is the highest point of this trek.
Day 3: Sarotu to Chhika (6 km/5 hrs)
