Second stage of our trek in which we leave the Jhula Camp (Jhola), in the valley of the Dumordo River, to return to the main valley of the impressive and brave Braldu River. We have a beautiful day (it will be an exception unfortunately) with sun and a fairly pleasant temperature (for the heat it can make for the day in this low part of the trekking). Once we are in the main valley, we soon leave to the right the also impressive valley of the Ching Kang, which closes in the southwest the massive massif of the Masherbrum. Some clouds that cover the heights of the Paiju peaks (which gives name to our target camp of the day) and the Urdukas peaks (at the foot of the Masherbrum in the north) get into it. In any case, the landscape is already great.
We saved several wading (provided with some stones) over rivers of very earthy waters, like those of all the rivers in the area. There are sections that we approach the main river (which refreshes the temperature) and others in which we gain some height to get away from it. Before arriving at Paiju Camp we have to take off our shoes to wander a last torrent that goes down very roughly because of the afternoon time it is (we will again wade it back in the early morning with a much scarcer flow).
The views from the camp are impressive.In this camping area we will do two nights to acclimatize better, something very important for the success of the trek.
