Hampta Pass Trek-Day 4, Sia Goru to Chattru

Thanks to yesterday’s steep and rocky descents and the bone-chilling winds, my sprained knee had gone from bad to worse by morning. Ruchi’s was just slightly better. I was not able to join the morning-exercise session and restricted myself to doing flexion which did help but the relief was little more than temporary. The fact that it was all down-hill today, save for a few small ascents, should have made me happy after a full day of steep ascent the previous day but with the knees in bad shape the entire situation was upside down. After-all, it is way more difficult to climb down than to walk up if your knee is not in good shape.
