Great Big Walk Day 50: To Dzongla (4843m)

We proceed to Dzongla, another spectacularly situated camp, on our way to our next pass, the Cho La.

Quote for the Day

Me thinks that the moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow.  ~Henry David Thoreau

Did You Know?

The first two women to reach the summit of Mount Everest did so in 1989.

Find Your Fit Fact

Physical activity does not have to be vigorous or done for long periods in order to improve your health. A 2007 study of inactive women found that even a low level of exercise – around 75 minutes per week – improved their fitness levels significantly, when compared to a non-exercising group.

Activity Suggestion: Thin Ice

Materials Needed: 9 hula hoops per group.

Using the nine hula hoops the instructor should make a grid which the children must navigate. The ice is only safe on certain hula hoops meaning there is only one correct way to get out of the “ice”.  If a student were to walk on thin ice they would have to go to the exit the way they entered and go to the back of the line. Eventually by trial and error and the students remembering which routes are correct they will be able to exit the ice and finish the game.
