If a pendulum clock is taken to a mountain top, does it gain or lose time?

The time period of a simple pendulum is given by

Time Peroid
When the pendulum is taken to the top of mountain, the value of ā€˜gā€™ will decrease and hence time period will increase. As the pendulum takes more time to complete one vibration, it will lose time.
