You go up to the plateau and then to the foot of the pass. It is a steep and difficult climb on a sandy slope as far as the Parfi-La 3.900 m (12.790 ft). This is the first of 8 passes you cross on your way to Lamayuru in the next 6 days. Rather steep descend until reaching the river Oma-chu. You cross the bridge and go up a 500 metres sandy slope. Enjoy the wonderful lookout. The slope leads you to the hutof SnertsePulu 3.770 m (12.370 ft).
