Austin and Harry checked in after the Teams returned to Chukkung after a perfect day of trekking and climbing. The team enjoyed perfect weather as they climbed Chukkung Ri (18,238 ft). Nice job everyone!
Tomorrow is a rest day for the Teams. This will also be the last day all of the Teams are together before they split up to tackle their next objectives. The Ama Dablam Team will shift gears and head over to Base Camp. The 3X3/2X2 Teams will have a more strenuous day as they take the trail less traveled over Khongma La Pass (18,320 ft). This is high altitude trekking and the reward is great as this team gains elevation and crosses onto the famous Khumbu Glacier. The good news is that have a day to rest up!
We have dates on the website for the 2018 Khumbu Valley Trekking and Climbing Season.
