Our vacation is now over having been summoned back to base camp to get into position for our summit push. A few days at lower altitude definitely seems to have revitalised everyone and even got rid of the Khumbu cough, so hopefully we are in as good condition as possible to attempt the summit. What took us 3 days of walking on the way in we just completed in a day. Hopefully, I have seen the last of the trekking trails having now completed most of the base camp trek twice and a good part of it 3 times! If all goes well, I will catch a helicopter from base camp to Katmandu – a mere 45 mins – thereby avoiding the trek back Dowty Lukla. There would seem to be lots of hitchhikers willing to jump aboard. First things first though…..
