The IMG Teams had a great day in Tingri. They took an acclimatization hike just outside of town where they got views of Everest and Cho Oyu. Mike said the Team is feeling great and looking forward to getting up early and heading to Base Camp. Regardless of the year, it is always a good feeling to be getting close to “home.” The Cho Oyu Base Camp is one of those places that makes you feel like you are getting closer to your destination
Phunuru and the Sherpa Team are ready for everyone to come on in! Base Camp is all set up and looks fantastic. When you have been to Cho Oyu as many times as Phunuru has (16 expeditions) he gets an idea of where and how to set up camp. The camp is situated on level ground where the sun will hit the tents in the morning for a little warmth.
Time to settle in!
