Good news, the weather cleared up and Sonam Dorje received our three sling loads of gear flown up from Thaksindu to Shyangboche. This is located above Namche Bazaar at 12,402 ft / 3,780 m. The loads were flown in by an AS350 B3 helicopter, which is commonly used in Nepal for flying to high elevations. Next up, Ang Passang will be transporting everything up to Base Camp by yaks in the next few days. Back in Kathmandu, more of our first team members have been arriving. So far so good in Nepal!
