Today was Puja Day on Cho Oyu. Phunuru called early this morning to let us know the Puja Day was a lot of fun and the team enjoyed being together for this auspicious day. The team had light snow for the entire day but it is melting so no accumulation. A Lama from Tingri came up to ABC to join the team and ask the mountain for safe passage this season.
After the Puja, the team enjoyed another great lunch by Head Chef Kaji and then packed food and gear for the first rotation up the mountain. Tomorrow, the Sherpa will make a carry to Camp 1 while the rest of the team train at ABC and prepare for the rotation.
All is well on Cho Oyu!
