After getting up at the early hour of 5 this morning, the team left for Kala Pattar by 6. It had snowed overnight, so it was cold to start off with, but the views were incredible. Watching the sun rise over Everest was a breathtaking experience. Besides the cold hands, cold feet, headaches and nausea, everyone reached the 5500-metre summit of Kala Pattar. Congratulations team – you guys rock!
We are now back in Gorak Shep preparing to leave for Base Camp. Everyone is excited.
