Thukla, also known as Dughla, lies at the very end of the Khumbu glacier and
is usually just a lunch stop. However, if you aren't feeling well because of
the altitude, there is accommodation available. Whatever you do, don't push it
from here onwards.
Have a closer look at the stream beside Thukla. The milky appearance is
because of the rock flour produced by the grinding machinery of Khumbu
glacier. As you navigate the steep moraine of the Khumbu Glacier above Thukla,
you will be reminded of the fragility of life in the mountains for at the end
of the climb are memorial chortens for climbers who weren't lucky enough to
come back from Everest.
