The hills and passes play peekaboo with the Mount Kanchenjunga and Mount Jannu. After a brief recess, the trek starts with a sharp descent to the Tamur River, finally reaching the Mitlung village. This is where you can start putting your trekking poles to use and the roads further will be slippery and tricky. Day 5: Trek to Chirwa (1,270 m): This is a total of six hours walk (approx.). We walk to the Tamur River and will see many villages on the way. You will see an array of plantations of rice, millet, potatoes, and vegetables and the area is blessed with fertile soil. After a slight descent, we cross a wooden bridge on Thiwa khola, and get to Chirwa after several ups and downs. A short way from the village is a large field among large stones. This is where we will be camping for the night. After quickly consuming the meals, preparation for the next day will be done and finally the much needed rest.

Day 10: Acclimatisation day at Ghunsa (3,595 m): Along the trail to Lobsang La, preparation will be done to transition into the higher elevation and successfully pass acclimatization. It is necessary because the trail is about to get to the height of 4,000 m in a mere three hours from camp and two hours to return to Ghunsa. This walk is so that the trekkers get accustomed to the steep rise in altitude that they will witness and feel in the next three days as we make our way to the northern side of Kanchenjunga Base
