We have made it safely by Helicopter to Samagaun, our first stop to acclimatize before Basecamp. We will be here for two nights, before heading up a little higher. Once we arrived we got right into checking out the town with a couple Puja ceremonies at the local monasteries. It was a great cultural experience for the team and a good way to start the expedition with a couple blessings.
Tomorrow we will be doing a couple hikes to further our acclimatization. We are now at 11,500ft here and the team is feeling good! We are still a little tired from jet lag and looking forward to a good nights sleep.
I will update again tomorrow. Thanks for following along!
