Nyalam Acclimatisation

Ascent of a nearby local peak (4370m). All team members acclimatising well although there are a few 'dodgy stomachs' - this can always be expected. Glimpses of nearby peaks are possible through breaks in the cloud. Possible site for high altitude golf course/ski centre mapped out by 'Crusty', one of the entrepreneurs in the team. The evening passes with cards & discussion. All hope that the rats in the lodge where we are staying don't break through the ceiling. The karaoke bar does not fail to entertain to the extent that only Big Boss notices the earthquake in the middle of the night.
