Three nights ago there was a large thunder and lighting storm that past over much of Nepal, although very spectacular, and cleared all the pollution from Kathmandu it also struck one of the 77 repeater towers that enable EverestLink wifi at EBC. Of course some of these towers are quite remote, so it takes time to repair. So that is why there has been no updates from BC.
Welcome back to the Himex Daily Moraine, and what a busy time we’ve had in the last week or two!
So, what have we been up to since we last posted? Well, we have potentially done a world first (totally unofficial so don’t quote me on this at all) by naming a new obscure trail the “W” which involved walking from EBC up to Pumori camp 1, then across to the ‘mini’ Kala Patthar and then up to the ‘main’ Kala Patthar….quite a walk which took us just under 5.5 hours including a quick stop in Gorak Shep to recharge.
