The perfect agenda for Goechala is 9 days in length, from Yuksom to Yuksom. In any case, because of absence of information and indiscreet frame of mind, I did it in 5. In the wake of picking up information and doing some more treks, I understood the casualty of what I had done and what it could wind up like. While I was doing Goechala, I had no clue about AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) and its side effects. Had I experienced it, I don’t have a clue how severely I would have been influenced yet I do know this, it would have been a serious story. (On the off chance that I some way or another figured out how to live through it).
The peculiar agenda that I pursued was:
Day 1: Yuksum to Tshoka (16 km; 9,701 ft)
Day 2: Tshoka to Phedang (4.5 km; 12,083 ft)
Day 3: Phedang to Lamuney (12 km; 13,743 ft)
