Gorakshep
15th April, 2014 -Dzonglha

After a rough night trying to sleep at 5140 meters (nearly 17,000 feet), an altitude that humans were not evolved to pop in for a visit, we left Gorak Shep. We walked along the Khumbo Glacier under a brilliant blue sky and massive mountains including Nuptse, and Pumo Ri. Sadly after a couple of hours we came to a fork in the road and split the group for a few days.  All of us are enjoying one or multiple minor ailments that at times try our patience. Ron and Alice took the trail to Pheriche to work on their acclimatization while Mark, Todd and Ed (with their own assortment of minor ailments) took the trail to Dzonglha according to the original itinerary. The group plans to meet in a few days at the Buddhist monastery in Thame.

Once Mark et al turned the corner and entered the Chola Valley we  were awe struck by the view. We walked along the northeast side of the valley on the side of a moraine 1600m above the valley floor that separated us from a line of sheer snow and glacier covered +6000m peaks that you simply will have to wait for pictures to appreciate. At Dzonglha we entered the marvelous Maison Sherpa, a new and really nice Tea House. After a quick lunch of Ra Ra and soup everyone tried to grab a nap and rest for tomorrow’s trek across the second of the three high passes, Chola Pass.
