In the month of summer, shepherds from Hinju region cross the Konzke la so that the livestock can graze properly. The trail will also pass the huts and you will see them making butter, cheese and curd. Cheese spread will be seen spreading on the ground. It is left to dry and made into small white nuggets which are then left for years. Descent is long enough from Konzke la. As you move, the path gets close to the river. You will find a number of good campsites there. Keep moving till you reach Sumda Chenmo (3.900m). The village is isolated.

From the top, it is very long and also very tiring and you reach Chilling.
