    Rest day & explore Tibetan Border or day hike (3860m) Hiking duration: 8/9 hrs


    Have your breakfast. This is another day set aside for proper acclimatization. There are two options for you today.

Manaslu along with other Himalayan ranges including Simrang, Hiunchuli, Ngadi, Larkye Peak, Cheo and possibly Kang Guru behind the pass. En route to these viewpoints, you pass many seasonal herding settlements called doksas and sight some beautiful mountain birds like the Lophophorus (the national bird of Nepal), Lammergeyer and Himalayan Griffin soaring high above us. Another option for today could be a trip to the Gya La ('large pass') to the north of Samdo, a more frequently used trading route to Tibet. But, this is a rather long hike (whole day) and hence could be a little tiring. Overnight in Samdo.
