IMG Leader Justin Merle reports from Dingboche that the team is doing well. Today they are enjoying a rest day, with some day hikes, the last internet contact for a few days, and hot showers.
The weather has been normal for the autumn trekking season, with sunny mornings for the most part, and afternoon clouds. The climbers have packed the Lobuche climbing gear to be taken straight to Lobuche BC, where they will head after the trip to Everest Base Camp. Tomorrow they head up the big hill of the terminal moraine of the Khumbu Glacier, to Lobuche village. So far, so good!
