This day is very important for proper acclimatization. Since the entire walk is mostly on snow and ice, a trekking pole and ice axe will come in handy today. The trail from Dhanrashi / Lower waterfall passes through a number of streams that you need to hop over until you get to the mouth of the waterfall. It will take close to 2 hours to get to the upper waterfall camp. Camp overnight. ( *Note :in case of less snow / ice we will camp higher at Rataferi camp, which will help in achieving the summit next day)

Prepare yourself for a long and gruelling, yet exciting day as you trek for almost 11 hours at a stretch. The trail is mostly on snow fields with steep ascents and all you see for miles and miles is a perfectly white hue. The pass is a saddle on a ridge line cutting its way through and across the Dhauladar range. Hundreds of little stone cairns line up the ridge line of the Rupin pass. On your way down from the pass, it is a sharp descent to the snowline and then to the meadows of Ronti Gad. You will reach Ronti Gad camp by evening
