High Camp – 4800+ meters. Stars stars stars – but it was cold! I woke up and wanted to drink some water – it was frozen solid in the room. Quick to the restaurant and some hot tea. Than we did wait till there was sun at the trail. 9 am – sun is here – lets roll. Took me 3 hours to the highest point: 5416m. To take a picture of the pass you go a bit higher – but lets say this was the 2nd time i was over 5400. I did overtake some idiots that start at 3 in the morning (freeeezing cold!!!!) 45 minutes lower than my hotel. It is as dark as inside a yak – and as cold as in your ice box – wtf is the point??
Oh – yes they had a guide – that was in a hurry I guess. So I could move with only a T-shirt. Had to put on a jacket on the top of course – everybody was there – the boys from the us – the Russians, the English, the artists from London, the Frogs, my new friend from NYC. The Russians had genuine duty-free whiskey and cognac – and they did share as well as the Americans with their local booze. Than you walk down for hours and reach the 1st village – motorbikes, truck and jeeps – that was it!
Cheers Nepal – I had a really good time!!
