Day 8: Base Camp – Fix ropes


Following our acclimatisation schedule we have arrived to Base Camp. We left Pengboche this morning at  avery good pace because everyone is excited about starting the climb.

Base camp is located on the West side of the valley (opposite the usual base camp for Ama). Our location is far more quiet and easy to access from the valley.

Today we had a training session with fix ropes. Tomorrow is rest day and Puja (Blessing) of the team. A local Lama comes from Tengboche’s monastery to perform the ceremony.
