Great Big Walk Day 24: Cross Lumbha Sambha La (5159m) to Thudam (3556m)

Cross Lumbha Sambha La to Thudam (3556m)

Today we gain magnificent views of the Lumbha Sambha as we climb to the crest of a saddle, the trail here is faint and often undefined due to snow. We traverse below a peak and to another saddle and then make our crossing of the Lumbha Sambha (5159m). From here there are views of Jannu and Makalu to the east. From the pass we descend to the northwest.

Quote for the Day

I would walk along the quais when I had finished work or when I was trying to think something out. It was easier to think if I was walking and doing something or seeing people doing something that they understood.
Ernest Hemingway

Activity Suggestion: Body Spelling Nepal Edition

Objectives: This is a great opportunity for students to get familiar with their bodies as well as learn to work with others to accomplish a goal and get to know one another.  It also provides a chance for the students to practice spelling.

Materials needed: None

Activity Description: Clear an area that will allow for students to have adequate space to form letters with their bodies as a group.  For this activity you want students to get in groups of five.  Once the students are in their groups instruct them to spell out the word Nepal using only their bodies.  Creativity is encouraged here as students will have to work together to form the shapes of the letters needed for the correct spelling.  You can also add more words that are related to Nepal to encourage more progression.  The purpose of this activity is to encourage teamwork amongst students and to help teach spelling.
