This is the day every pilgrims talk about, the most difficult journey throughout the yatra. The last pull to the pass is steep and, due to the altitude, unrelenting. At a dizzy height of 5640m 18600ft, the Drolma Tara La marks the transition from this life to a new one. 200m below the pass is a view of the lake of compassion, Gauri kund 5440m to18400ft. The path stretches ahead, with distant mountains on the horizon. The way down is long and the last descend is quite steep. Further trek on the east bank of the river and reach Zuthulpuk, dinner and overnight at Camp tent or mud house. The walk between Dirapuk to Zuthulpuk may take about 10 to 12 hours.
