Your walk over Larkya La will start before dawn. You'll find it helpful to time your trek with an eye to the moon phase.

To cross Larkya La you will set out well before dawn. 4 am is not unreasonable. If you can sort out the moon phases and rise / set times and plan your trek whith that in mind it will be helpful to have moon light for the first few hours.
