IMG guide Adam Angel reports from Kathmandu that the team had a fun day today visiting the ancient town of Bhaktipur, to the east of Kathmandu. Bhaktipur is famous for incredible woodcarving and the team was also able to do some shopping for thangka paintings. This evening they headed to the famous Boudhanath stupa in Kathmandu, and tomorrow morning they will fly to Nepalgunj in western Nepal tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Ang Jangbu reports that our head cook Jor Bahadur and the kitchen staff have made it to Dunai this afternoon. They had left Kathmandu on September 10th, drove to the road head at Solabung in Rukum and then walked 5 days from there to Dunai. Also, our sirdar, Lopsang Sherpa, flew into Masinechaur airport on the Goma Air flight this morning. He will organize the local porters and be ready to meet the team when they arrive. So far, so good!
