IMG guide Justin Merle reports that the weather was good today and everyone is doing well. The Annapurna Trek team had a nice hike from Yak Karka up to Phedi (14,600ft) and they are now ensconced there, preparing for a 4am departure for the Thorung La Pass (17,769 feet (5,416 m). Meanwhile, the climbers had a good rest day today at Chulu Base Camp and are preparing to move up to high camp (about 17,500ft) tomorrow, with the hope of tagging the summit of Chulu Far East the next morning. We’ll keep you posted!
