The Cho Oyu Team is now at the Kyirong border and will be up early to cross out of Tibet and continue to Kathmandu in the morning. Once in Kathmandu, the team will start making plans to return home. Since this was the last night with our liaison officer and Sherpa team, Phunuru decided to have the celebration dinner and hand out summit certificates. One more day of traveling into Kathmandu!
On Putha Hiunchuli, the team hiked to Camp 1 (17,798’/5425m). The weather for the hike was nice in the morning and began clouding up in the afternoon. The auspicious day for the Puja is Tuesday and on Wednesday, the team will move to Camp 1 for their first rotation. Looking forward to the Puja on Putha Hiunchuli!
