Phunuru called this morning to let us know the team had a good day moving from Shigatse to Tingri (14,265’/4300m). Today was a day of travel in vehicles, taking in the Himalayas from the North Side. A few high clouds and a cool breeze kept the team moving and they are now settled in at Tingri.
Tomorrow, the Team will head to Chinese Base Camp to visit IMG Head Chef, Kaji Sherpa for lunch and some acclimatization hiking before dropping back down to Tingri for the night. A couple nights of sleep at Tingri will help the team acclimatize before making the move to Chinese Base Camp. With the newly paved roads in Tibet, traveling by vehicle is much easier and allows our team to get more altitude before dropping back down for a comfortable nights of sleep.
Our Sherpa Team has loads ready for the yaks that arrived today and will be heading out tomorrow morning for ABC.
The team is feeling great!
