From Chuksang, there is a long steady climb to the Gyu La (4030m) through the amazing mud and wood village of Tangbe, and there is a stunning view waiting for you from the pass. This is followed by a fast descent on good trails to Muktinath.
A short-ish run but plenty of climb and hard work after this week of high-altitude effort.
There is the option to complete a full loop by running to Jomsom (2-3 hours) or taking a shared taxi back to the hotel. So far, 90% of people have chosen the latter!
