Elevation: 16,000 ft.

We finally after many days of travel, have safely arrived in the Cho Oyu Basecamp at just over 16,000’. We were happily welcomed by our wonderful support team of Lama Babu, Tendi and our cook Kumar. When we pulled into camp, we had a nice lunch with the crew, got reacquainted with all of our gear and settled in to our tents.

This afternoon we went for a nice hike to just over 17,500’. The weather is great and the conditions look good. Everybody is incredibly excited to be here- finally out of the city life and into the mountains. All is well and everyone is in great health. Looking forward to spending a couple days here continuing our acclimatization.

We’ll check in another day or two.
