Talked to IMG lead guide, Mike Hamill yesterday. Weather has improved and all are doing well. No altitude issues and the team is handing the rigors of the trek well.
Yesterday would have been a long day, reaching the village of Shomuthang at about 13,900 ft. Next couple of days will again be about 8 hours of walking. They’ll be heading for Robluthang at 13,600 ft today and going over Jari La at just under 16,000 ft to get there. The views never cease to amaze. So far, so good.
