Mike Hamill checked in today:
“We had a great drive from Lhasa to Shigatse today past Yamdrok lake. The clients were quite impressed by the lake and the Tibetan Mastiffs posing for photos in route. Before leaving Lhasa, the Secretary General of the CTMA (China Tibet Mountaineering Association) stopped by to wish us well on our expedition. We plan to get a hike tomorrow morning and tour the Tashilumpo Monastery in the afternoon. All’s well here.”
The Sherpa plan to head in to base camp tomorrow after a day of shopping in Tingri.
