Ama Dablam expedition arrives in Base Camp!

We arrived here at base camp today, Novem­ber 10th, safe and sound. We walked up today with Pasang Dawa, our young appren­tice guide. We also got to meet our full crew here includ­ing our cook, Babu Ram. The crew has an amaz­ing base camp set up! All the stops were pulled out: we have a show­er, solar pan­els, heat­ed cook tent, even an oven in the kitchen! So we are liv­ing large and every­one is healthy and hap­py. Today we had a beau­ti­ful morn­ing meet­ing Lama Gushi and had a nice Puja cer­e­mo­ny to start the day.

It took us 2 hours and 15 min­utes to walk up from Pang­boche which was real­ly good time. Now we are sit­ting at 4,600 meters at base camp. The whole crew is here. We had a real­ly nice din­ner and every­one is fat and hap­py. The moun­tain and the weath­er have been per­fect, no wind, clear skies, no clouds and real­ly high pres­sure. It is real­ly cold right now, only 4 or 5 degrees Cel­sius. Every­one is send­ing their regards to friends and fam­i­ly back home!
