Trek to Dole 4110m

Hilary_Chhorten Day 7 finds us trekking up to the capsite at Dole which is the first time above 4000m. This is when the altidue starts to bite and the climb up and over the Mong La pass is a true test of fittness and acclimatisation. We leave behind the tree line and enter a wholely different climate band of grasses and low lying shrubs. This is Yak territory and an altogether more brutal landscape. The really big mountains now come into view. It is interesting to note that, despite having climbed to over 4000m, the mountains are still 3-4000m aboe our heads. Spectatular!!
