Lukla (2866 m)
Whilst the world awaits the outcome of the
American Presidential election, René and his group of 3 AC team members
await a plane to ferry them out of Lukla and back to Kathmandu. Oh, what
disappointment! The clouds were thick and dense all day and there was not
a plane in sight! The group of 4 will be staying on at the "Paradise"
Lodge again tonight in one small room. It seems the entire village is
fairly over-populated at the moment!
News from the mountain is that the team of
3 successful summiteers arrived back at Base Camp last night after a very
long and tiring journey down the mountain. Alongside, we have an actual
photo of the group on their way down.
