When you are at the top of the much-anticipated peak, it offers spectacular view of Mount Kharlung at the other side, Mount Chamser and Mount Lungser with all those beautiful Meadowy valleys and blue lake all lying beneath. After enjoying the view, slowly and steadily get down towards base camp before getting too late.
