Hi, this is Garrett Madison calling in for the Brown & Hedges Everest Base Camp Trek and Island Peak Climb. And this evening we arrived in Khumjung. We’re very happy to be here.
We had a long day coming from Lung Den all the way back down the valley, past Thame and up to Khumjung because the Renjo La Pass was unpassable. There was about over a meter of snow on the pass and no one has been over it yet, probably not for at least a few days.
So we’re heading up the traditional route towards Base Camp and it sounds like there’s still a lot of snow up there in Gorek Shep and the Base Camp area. So we’re looking forward to a beautiful day on the trail tomorrow and some great views of Ama Dablam and Everest and we’ll make our way up to Tengboche Monastery and onward to Deboche for the night.
Everyone’s doing great and we’ll check in soon, thanks.
