All of our group successfully arrived at base camp (5350m) yesterday. Our guide was very pleased as some groups have already lost as much as 50 percent of their contingent. We now get to check out our new home for the next 6 weeks. Compared to some of the lodges we have stayed in it feels 5*. There is a heated dining tent, solar shower, good food, and even a generator to charge our gadgets. I will update with some photos of base camp when/if we get better cover.
