One of the most beautiful base camps in the world
After having spent four nights in Pheriche, the team is now excited to reach base camp, where we will soon meet the rest of the team around Naoki, the film star.
From our little summit we had a very good view of the North Ridge, which looked just as steep as yesterday.
In order to be well acclimatised, we will stay in Pheriche (4,280m) for a couple of nights before we head straight to Ama Dablam base camp, which is at about 5,100m
