The Manaslu team made it up to Camp 2 today for acclimatization, and then returned to Camp 1 for sleeping tonight. Mingma Tenzing and Chewang carried up another ladder to help fix the route below Camp 2. Sounds like the weather is OK, but we are keeping out eye on the forecast…there might be some snow coming later this week. Lopsang, Jor Bahardur and Dhansher got back to Kathmandu yesterday evening with the trekking gear. Lobsang said they met countless number of porters on the way to Sama and that there was a porter shortage in Arughat, so some teams were delayed getting to Base Camp. Good thing we were ahead of the main crowd! Here are some photos of the trek that Lopsang took.
