The Cho Oyu and Tibet Trekking Team are on the move again today. Mike and Jangbu report that the team covered some ground today and have made it to Tingri. The morning started with good weather and then clouds came in leading to eventual rain. The drive takes the team over Gyatso la (17,250’) and past the Everest Viewpoint. Mount Everest hid in the clouds today but the Team will have more opportunities to see her. Across the Tibetan Plateau and onto the Tingri Plain, the team will take a couple days to stretch their legs and get more acclimatized.
I heard from Phunuru over the weekend also. He and the Sherpa Team drove towards Cho Oyu and are getting Base Camp set up. Other teams are beginning to pull into Base Camp as well. Everyone is doing great in Tibet!
