This day is more about learning and getting acclimatized than about covering more ground. The trail from Dhanderas to the upper waterfall camp is pretty short and can be covered quickly if necessary. But trekkers take time through the trail getting acclimatized and learning few simple snow trek hacks necessary for the days to come. Tents are pitched at the upper waterfall camp(14327 ft) and trekkers are advised to hit their tents early to compensate for the next day's early plan. (3 km, 3 hours)
Trekkers start way early as this is the longest trail of the entire trek. The climb is pretty steep and demanding. The pace is kept at a minimum due to the low oxygen level at the altitude.
