This is the crowning day of your trip and the most challenging one. The trek is long on this day and should be started at around 7 AM. It would take approximately 5-6 hours to reach the top.
As we start walking towards the mountains from Balu Ka Gera along the river for an hour when the gradient begins, the trail takes you straight towards Hampta Pass. In no time, you will see the first plateau, the magnificent Deo Tibba peak right in front of you. Climb up the ridges as you come closer to Hampta Pass. The climb is vertical and steep which demands concentration and effort, which is all worth it at the end. Now at 14,100 ft., you are on top of Hampta Pass with breathtaking views that will leave you in awe. The descent is slightly trickier than the ascent as always. It can vary slightly depending on the snow condition too. At last reach Siagoru Camp after the long journey as you halt for the night. Overnight stay in a tent.
