Guides Eben Reckord and Charlotte Austin reported from Muktinath, where they are taking a rest day after crossing the Thorung La Pass yesterday. Today they visited the famous temple, which is a sacred place for both Buddhists and Hindus, and the goal of many pilgrims. They had great views of Dhaulagiri, the seventh highest mountain at 8,167 m (26,795 ft).
Over in the Khumbu, guides Justin Merle and Peter Anderson report that the team made it to Base Camp and today had their expedition puja. The sherpas have already established Camp 1, so everything should be ready for them to move up in the next day or two.
