                  High Camp

 

High camp 
It took us one and a half hours to cross the moreen covered glasier and we had gained 40 m in altitude. We then ascented quite steeply 600 m to our high camp at 4740 m. We have two tents and a kitchen tent where the porters sleep. Lovely views from here!. Malla decided not to go for the summit because it is one kilometer ascent and too hard for her with the flu and everyting.

Pempa and Nigma went still further ahead to fix the ropes ready for tomorrow. So the real stuff for Timo and the sherpas begins at 4 am.
