You will cross a total of 4 river bridges before reaching Tshoka, whenever there is a bridge. So the constant descent and then climbing after each bridge makes it a tough day of trekking. The gain of height is gradual.

The Tshoka to Dzongri is a challenging hike. Because the altitude is about 1000 feet. Expect Dongri to be very cold and windy. And depending on the weather conditions you may experience snowfall.
