Namaste friends, family & loved ones,
We said goodbye to our trekkers this morning as they head down valley and we turn our attention to scaling Island Peak. A couple decided to take the helicopter to get away from my bad jokes even faster.
After a pleasant lunch in the outpost settlement of Chukkung, we prepared for our expedition. Our focus was knots and rigging. Harnesses are checked and ready for action now.
We have one member feeling the altitude but he seems to be on the mend this evening. Tomorrow we plan to trek to base camp. Please follow our climb!
All my best,
