Day 2 - Sachen - Tshoka (2965 m) 4 hrs walk.
  • This is a short trek, but the altitude gain is considerable. Trekkers love the initial amble through the forest it gives you a chance to loosen up before the stiff climb to Bakhim from the bridge over river Prek.The trail out of Sachen undulates but maintains an even altitude, in fact gaining a few feet until 45 minutes and 2 kms later you drop down to the bridge over Prek. Take the trail that begins to climb to the left of the bridge. The trail climbs sharp through a mixed oak forest until the wide switchbacks level somewhat half hour later at the sight of the first Rhododendrons. The altitude gain is rapid and the airgets cooler perceptively. Soon the trail climbs to the ridge and stays there until you get to Bakhim another half hour later. The trail again climbs in a series of long switchbacks, overlooking Bakhim until forty minutes later it dives around a ridge to move to the other side of the hill. Overnight at tents.
