NEWSLETTERS - Cho Oyo Autumn 1998

Newsletter 352 October 1998


It snowed throughout the night and for most of the morning. I awoke to find the Sherpas trying to pack my tent whilst I was still in it. We all retreated to the mess tent for breakfast and played yet more card games while we waited for the yaks to get loaded and head off. This was so we could follow their ‘dung trail’. In a way it was sad to leave, but it was the only thing to do. The route back seemed much longer than on the way up, but of course we did take two days on the way up. The river crossing near to BC was exciting.
