Acclimatization day at Dingboche usual morning routines after a very uncomfortable night in fever & cold. We decided to climb up anyway, acclimatization is more important than resting ….. Satu got the cold also during the night, so we have still one healthy pax among us, Pasi. Climb was not too bad, slowly slowly up up, quite steep sloop. I turned back at 4800mtr.Satu at 4900mtr. And the boys went all the way to top of Nagarjun 5100mtr. The sun was burning but the wind was cold so you feel hot & cold in turns. Rest of the day is resting and preparing for tomorrow hike to Lobuche.

Mingmar: (About SteriPEN)
I’m using the SteriPen water purifier to treat the pure drinking water for our team/Group since our trek begun. The water fill from the tape, which was come through pipe line from the stream.Which is not direct drinkable for foreign traveler so we use the SteriPen Water purifier to make the water drinkable for foreigner. The SteriPen water purifier device works very effective. We all did not have any problem by dinking the water purified by SteriPen water purifier.
