Alyas - Chobia Pass - Alyas (Lahual side) ~10 hours
Most challenging day of the trek. The weather at pass can get bad after noon so we need to start by 4 a.m. at least. After a tough climb we reach the pass and offer our prayers. The descent on Lahaul side is steep and no less taxing, as there is chance of crevasses hidden under snow; which needs to be navigated with precaution and under expert supervision Day 5
