Chinese Base Camp
Chinese Base Camp, 4900m
6 September 2005
At last we made the road end!! After three hours drive we are now at what is known as Chinese Base Camp and although the road continues, we will walk from here after two nights at this elevation. It was great to once again meet up with the Sherpas, who had set up our eating, cooking and sleeping tents. Even though it is a temporary camp, everyone is impressed with the setup (wait till they see the real thing!!).
The afternoon was spent resting and building on the good friendships already establishing themselves amongst the group. Some great characters are already emerging and there is bound to be a few funny stories to follow.
Dinner's almost ready, until tomorrow,
