With baited breath, we awoke hoping against hope for a lovely blue sky. Unfortunately, thick clouds and a light drizzle greeted us as we emerged from our respective rooms. Though the weather seemed to be a constant dampener, I invariably find that good company makes a journey so much more memorable. As we made our way from Dingbouche to Lobouche, we found ourselves surrounded by clouds, reducing visibility to just under 20 ft. Undertaking this journey alone would invariably have left me depressed to say the least, but the fact that I had good company, made the trek go by really fast. Though today was probably one of the coldest days of my life, the highlight was us trekking through snow. It started snowing as we made our way up the Thukla pass and continued snowing the entire evening.
