Today will be a short walk but it is important to not reach Gosaikunda today because the steady gain in altitude will help us acclimatize better to the high altitude. After trekking for a while we pass by a chorten and a checkpoint. From the checkpoint, we move south and pass by Garta Village and Phulung Monastery before reaching Shin Gompa. We then continue on until we come to Lauribina passing an area that is a sanctuary for red panda. As we get closer to Lauribina we can see Manaslu, Annapurna, and Ganesh Himal.
