The fifth day of acclimatisation started with a hike up to Kumrichi Peak at 3900m.
After lunch back at the camp, we packed everything up and hiked over the VCSP pass and headed down. Half-way down the mountain, we passed a military unit specialised in mountain warfare, resting on a very steep meadow, only for them to literally run past us 15 mins later.
Due to the steep terrain, our group got split into several smaller groups. Once I got down, I dropped my pack and headed back up to help some of the slower moving climbers with their loads. Later I wondered if I should have been saving my strength?
