The 3 x 3 team is still moving strong, unbelievably strong actually. Today they moved from Thagnak across the Ngozumpa Glacier to Gokyo, then climbed Gokyo Ri (5357m). Gokyo is a little village nestled next to Gokyo Lake which sits among the Gokyo Lakes, the highest alpine lake system in the world. If that doesn’t get you fired up, take a look out the window and you’ll see Cho Oyu, the 6th highest mountain in the world.
Tomorrow they’ll head over Renjo La Pass to Lungden and then onto Namche the following day. They’re in the home stretch now, but still enjoying every minute of the trek.
