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 â€“ and showering.
Jan depicts the expedition members: â€œwe’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.â€ (Besides Mikko there are two other Finns in the group.)
It seems that everything is more than OK, and as Jan puts it: â€œIt’s a good life here in the mountains.â€
