Phil called in with the latest from the Bhutan Team. After enduring snow & rain on the 4-hour trek from Lamithang yesterday, the team finally arrived in Laya (12,600’) – just in time to pitch tents and take down a hot dinner in the homes of the locals. By morning, the skies had cleared and they were able to enjoy a nice breakfast outside while basking in the breathtaking views of the snow covered peaks and surrounding scenery. The rest of the day was spent walking around the village of Laya, getting cleaned up and preparing for the final push tomorrow.
Only two days of walking remain before completing the trek – tomorrow they will move on to Konea.
All is good!
