Ang Jangbu reports that Adam Angel and the Dolpo team were up early at the hotel in Nepalgunj, so they could get to the airport and checked in by 5:30am for their scheduled 6:30 departure. The weather was good and the Goma Air Cessna 208 Grand Caravan departed on schedule for Masinchaur airport, about 100 air miles north of Nepalgunj in western Nepal. After arrival, they were ready to start trekking, with the goal today the town of Dunai. Good news–Adam reports that the team put in a full day of trekking today and made it to Dunai where they met up with their cook team and porters. So, the group is on schedule and everything so far has gone according to plan. That’s the way we like to start a trip! Adam reports they have seen zero other westerners since leaving Nepalgunj. Western Nepal is certainly a lot different from the more popular areas of the country, and these guys have a heck of a journey ahead of them.
