Greetings from Dingboche! We’re all doing well after an adventurous descent from Everest Basecamp in challenging weather. Some snow, some rain, poor visibility, lots of mud, a little bit of everything. Not to worry, the team rose to the occasion!
Technical difficulties prevented us from sending a Cybercast from Everest Basecamp yesterday, but we wanted to share the photos below from our wander through the base of the Khumbu icefall, a highlight of the day.
We were surrounded by spectacular ice formations, beautiful and intimidating all at once. We also were able to meet with the icefall doctors- the sherpa who fix the climbing route through the Khumbu icefall. The icefall doctors told us that so far they have used 5500 meters of rope and 3 ladders to establish the climbing route from Everest Basecamp up to Camp 2.
Tomorrow we will continue to trek back down valley— Namche here we come!
