Ama Dablam: Elias & Team Trek to the Base of Cho Oyu

Good evening!

What a day we had… We trekked to the base of Cho Oyu, where the seldom expeditions that climb is south side set their Base Camp. Man we felt small! We also had the best views that any trekker can have of Everest and Lhotse together (without climbing any peak) from any trail in the Khumbu Region. But we had to work hard, as this was the team’s first day above 5000m.
An uneventful return, and we were enjoying a nice dinner at our lodge by the shore of Gokyo Lake. We’re headed to bed, as another long day awaits tomorrow.
Stay tuned!

What a beautiful photo. Very excited for you all and your continued forward (and upward) progress!
“Long, blue, spiky-edged shadows crept out across the snow-fields, while a rosy glow, at first scarce discernible, gradually deepened and suffused every mountain-top, flushing the glaciers and the harsh crags above them. This was the alpenglow, to me the most impressive of all the terrestrial manifestations of God. At the touch of this divine light, the mountains seemed to kindle to a rapt, religious consciousness, and stood hushed like devout worshippers waiting to be blessed.”
