Rest Day

The latest update is by a Dutch team member Jan van den Bos.

Yesterday, as planned, the group gained 700 meters of altitude as they climbed to Tagnag at 4200 meters in good weather and along a nice path. They will stay there for two nights, having a rest day on Wednesday for acclimatizing, resting – and showering.

Jan depicts the expedition members: “we’re a quite a strong group right now and also a group of people that creates a good atmosphere, with animated talks during all meals, from breakfast to dinner. Mostly English is the common language, but sometimes you can hear Finnish, German or Dutch too.” (Besides Mikko there are two other Finns in the group.)

It seems that everything is more than OK, and as Jan puts it: “It’s a good life here in the mountains.”
