Ama Dablam Daily Report: Monday 3rd November

Lukla (2866 m)

René and 3 other AC team members arrived in Lukla this afternoon after a long and tiring walk from Namche Bazaar. The trip took almost 7 hours. Along the way, they enjoyed a plentiful pasta meal at Phakding. René arrived at Lukla with his pockets laden with rock samples for his MSc thesis. The group had hoped to catch a plane to Kathmandu today. However, they are booked to fly out of Lukla tomorrow morning and will stay at the Paradise Lodge tonight.

News from the mountain is that the 3 AC summiteers arrived safely back in Camp II earlier today and were hoping to make it all the way back to Base Camp later this evening.
