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 ‘g’ will decrease and hence time period will increase. As the pendulum takes more time to complete one vibration, it will lose time.
